Excerpt from Psychotherapy: Including the History of the Use of Mental Influence Directly and Indirectly in Healing and the Principles for the Application of Energies Derived From the Mind to the Treatment of Disease

Prefaces are a great waste of time, saidwfrancis Bacon, and, though they seem to proceed of modesty, they are bravery. In spite of this de terring expression of the Lord Chancellor, the author ventures to write a short apologia pro libro suo. Five years ago he began at Fordham University School of Medicine a series of lectures on Psychotherapy. This book consists of material gathered for these lectures. It will be found in many ways to partake more of the nature of a course of lectures than a true text-book. In this it follows French rather than English or American precedent. Its rela tion to lectures makes it more diffuse than the author would have wished, but this is offered as an explanation, not an excuse. Addressed to medical students and not specialists the language employed is as untechnical as possible, and, indeed, was meant as a rule to be such as young physicians might use to their patients for suggestion purposes.

The historical portion is probably longer than some may deem necessary. The place of psychotherapy in'the past seemed so 1mportant, however, and psychotherapeutics masqueraded under so many forms that an historical r sum of its many phases appeared the best kind of an introduction to a book which pleads for more extensive and more deliberate use of psychotherapy in our time. The historical portion was developed for the lectures on the history of medicine at Fordham and perhaps that fact helps to account for the space allotted to this section of the book.
