Dismemberment Murder: In Search of the Object
7               Two cases of dismemberment murders are presented in detail. A
blending of Freudian and Jungian understanding as applied to these
cases helps to shed light on the motivation for such acts.

Disproportionate  Disability: The  Freud-Charcot Syndrome
Rediscovered
25              A special group of patients evaluated for workmen's compensation
were found to suffer from catastrophic disability though having
minimal physical impairment. A specific cognitive limitation was
discovered leaving these patients especially vulnerable to chronic
psychological disorganization.

The Conflict and Reconciliation of the Ethical Interests of Therapist
and Patient
39              Professor Foster highlights the increasingly disturbing ethical
problems confronting psychiatrists in their relationship with patients.
In this connection he focuses on four major issues of profound
importance: (1) human experimentation; (2) informed consent; (3)
confidentiality and privilege; (4) the professional obligation to
exercise due care.

.found unfit to stand trial because of insanity were compared to other
groups of prisoners without psychotic designation over a 39-month

prisoner's recidivism and dangerousness.
