Identifier: EUA IN1/ACU/S2/17/1/15

Scope and Contents

" "He is an immature looking boy who has had a good deal of physical illness during the last few years. His home conditions are not favourable in so far as his relatives are over-anxious and over-protective. He never mixed with other children while he was small and developed an anxiety neurosis as soon as he started school. At present it seems advisable for him to go to school mornings only and our Social Worker will get in touch with the teacher to discuss the problem of improving his adjustment at school. He will also need to have psychotherapy for a considerable period and I have arranged for him to come to the Clinic once a week.” Had aptosis which the doctor could not account for – encephalitis? – now all right. His mother was 15 or 16 when he was born and his father was the same age. A peculiar family, all a little queer. They were entertainers."
