Psychosomatic Disorders and Mental Retardation in Children. The Langley Porter Child Psychiatry Series, Volume 3.
Szurek, S.A.; Berlin, I.N.
The reciprocal relationship between the child's emotional state and physiological disturbances is explored, and the effect of emotional disturbance on varieties of mental retardation or on obvious brain damage resulting from genetic metabolic disorders is assessed. Psychosomatic disorders of childhood are discussed in six papers on genetic considerations and six on diagnosis and treatment. Six articles review mental retardation of various etiology; and four present case studies. Each paper provides a list of references. (JD)
