FOCUS OF TRAINING IN CHILD PSYCHIATRY--THE INDIVIDUAL, THE FAMILY, AND THE COMMUNITY.
KOLANSKY, HAROLD; STENNIS, WILLIAM
THIS TRAINING PROGRAM FOR CHILD PSYCHIATRISTS DEPARTS FROM TRADITIONAL APPROACHES BY EMPHASIZING THE USE OF ALLIED MENTAL HEALTH DISCIPLINES, EXPERIENCE WITH FAMILY CHILD RELATIONSHIPS, AND A THOROUGH FOUNDATION IN NORMAL CHILD DEVELOPMENT. RESIDENTS BEGIN BY OBSERVING CHILDREN IN NURSERY SCHOOLS, DAY CAMPS, HOSPITAL NURSERIES, PEDIATRIC WARDS, AND A CAMP FOR ORGANICALLY-DAMAGED AND EGO-DISTURBED CHILDREN. INTENSIVE INDIVIDUAL DIAGNOSTIC STUDY IS MADE OF A VARIETY OF CHILDREN. SUCH DIAGNOSIS IS SIMPLIFIED BY CLASSIFICATION OF THE CHILD IN ONE OF FOUR MAJOR CATEGORIES. THE MAJOR FEARS OF THE CHILD AND THE CHILD'S SYMPTOMATOLOGY IN RELATION TO DEVELOPMENTAL AGE ARE STUDIED. THE RESIDENT LEARNS HOW TO USE THE SERVICES OF OTHER PROFESSIONS. HIS ROLE IN COMMUNITY AGENCIES IS CLARIFIED. HE LEARNS TO CONSTRUCT A PROGRAM FOR THE SPECIALIZED EDUCATION, SUPPORT, AND TRAINING OF CHILDREN WITH EGO DEFECTS. TRAINING IN INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY OF NEUROSES, CHARACTER NEUROSES, AND DISTURBANCES IN EGO FUNCTION IS SUPERVISED BY FOUR CHILD PSYCHIATRISTS. PREVENTATIVE WORK IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WITH THE MENTALLY RETARDED, AND WITH JUVENILE DELINQUENTS IS ALSO PART OF THE PROGRAM. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE 44TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ORTHOPSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION, INC., WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 22, 1967. (PS)
