Abstract

Personality and social aspects of 20 women with three or more illegitimacies were investigated simultaneously by three specialties. In this preliminary report, data indicate a predominant pattern of periodic dyscontrol with a chronic undertone of self‐defeating social relations. Mental retardation does not appear to be a significant factor. Family and social settings were often contributory to their difficulties. 1966 American Orthopsychiatric Association
