Abstract

After a long experience of about fourty years, an internist with an anatomopathological background explains how he has been brought to improve his knowledge in psychology, psychopathology and psychiatry. He did it not only by reading classical publications, starting with Freud, but also through teaching of highly qualified masters in psychotherapy and psychosomatic medicine. He describes about twelve personal cases particularly interesting where only modern psychotherapy has brought spectacular improvement, even long term care, while drug treatment ever failed. The author concludes that for young specialists in internal medicine who would have the motivation and courage to learn the bases of psychosomatics and psychotherapy, there is in practice of future medicine a place of choice waiting for them.
