Descriptive Follow-Up Study of the Comparative Adjustment of Six Male Children Discharged as Improved From New York State Psychiatric Institute and Hospital
In recent years, much attention has been focused on mental illness, particularly on that aspect which concerns itself with the prevention and treatment of the emotionally disturbed child. In order for these potentially productive children to be helped, an adjustment needs to be effected within themselves and their environment. For her second year field work placement, the writer was assigned to New York State Psychiatric Institute and Hospital as a student psychiatric social worker. This placement offered excellent opportunity for the writer to treat the parents of two emotionally disturbed children and to participate as an interdisciplinary team member in the total treatment of the children. Interest, thus focused, motivated the writer to learn and understand more about these children, what factors influenced their disturbance, how they could best be helped, and whether improvement is sustained once they are effectively treated and discharged from the hospital.
