Second Floor EYERLY'S Psychiatrist Speaks To Literary Section Dr. Julia McAdoo Says an Unwanted Child is Major Catastrophe "Ouo of tin* major catastrophes in life is for a child to arrive unwanted by the mother or tie rejected," declared Dr. Julia Kagan McAdoo, peythiatrist. who addressed an enthueiatic «ro»p of the Women'B Club members at the Literary Section luncheon yesterday afternoon. Dr. McAdoo, who with her husband, alKO a psychiatrist, own and operate Kiggs Sanatorium at 1 jams- vine, Frederick County, discussed the different mannerisms, attitudes, fears, and emotions of adult life on the basis of childhood and prenatal experiences. The psychiatrist went to say that an unwanted child is never completely happy and secure individual. In cases of these kind, a mother will often cover up her guilt by showering attention upon the child. Dr. McAdoo pointed out that, the pattern of behavior in a child is' formed by the age of five years. Circumstances, influence and environment may cause <* personality to deviate slightly but the general pattern is cut. In making a survey of state and private institutions, the psychiatrist reminded her a.idience that very few patients suffer from organic troubles but rather from emotional disturbances. "When a baby cries he is hungry and should be fed." stated Dr. McAdoo. If he is not he will he- come mistrustful of human beings and lack security. Another problem discussed was leaving a child alone. The speaker discouraged this by declaring children become lonely which is harmf-il and causes insecurity. Declaring that children do not want to grow up but want to be taken care of by their mothers. Dr. McAdoo compared this to some psychiatric patients who become infantile. Advising parents to develop characters of children in avoiding mental breakdowns, Dr. McAdoo suggested handling problems normally. Some of the signs in adults which show the inability of facing realities and wantin? to escape is fainting, alcoholism and amnesia. Mrs. Jack H. Beachley, chairman of the section, presided and introduced the speaker. Spring flowers lent a bright touch to the tables. SOCIETY AND CLUB NEWS N. Y. Speaker Plans Two Talks Today Orlo M.
