Abstract

Compared the frequencies with which 69 conversion symptoms are described in 18 abnormal psychology and psychiatry textbooks with the frequencies with which they appeared in a sample of 40 male hysterics and a group of female conversion reactions depicted in an earlier study. The correlations were small. Results suggest that textbook descriptions do not focus on the more common conversion reaction symptoms and are thus likely to mislead readers.
