It is only since the Great War that Reconstruction Therapy has attracted the general attention and interest that I believe it deserves. With this sudden interest it seems to me that there is a danger lest the well-meant enthusiasm of poorly informed disciples may do harm. While this book was planned and partly written before 1915 it has been necessary to broaden its scope to include certain aspects of the subject which have become more prominent since that period. The present time is one of great and sudden changes which require rapid physical and mental adjustments of the individual. As a consequence many are unable to keep their normal poise and suffer mental breakdowns. Others by a physical disability and a fear of inability to adjust themselves to living conditions may suffer with a disabling inhibition of their mental powers. It has been proved that reconstruction therapy can be used to restore both the physically and mentally sick to their normal or perhaps above it, and make them once more useful units in a community. If, therefore, I have added anything which will be helpful to those who are helping others I shall feel that I have not labored in vain.It is extremely difficult when one has received knowledge or stimulus from so many sources, so many friends, to give proper credit. I have tried to indicate in every case where a published statement has been of assistance.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
