0 Reviews
A fictional Child Psychiatrist's personal view of the human psyche and of the world at large. Cases range from simple childhood toilet and sleep problems to anorexia nervosa, abuse and psychosis and are seen through this specialist's eyes. There are also cases of "entrepreneurs" in the making, cases of family tragedy and cases that turn out not to be psychiatric at all. The material should be of interest to health care practitioners and the general public. Anybody can read The Cockroach Catcher. They do not have to be in the medical profession.
