Description:
Gorman wrote this introduction in his characteristic style, focusing on mentally/emotionally disturbed children, and using a case-study to make his point. The commission's editorial committee subsequently softened the language, prompting Gorman to write an angry report to his National Committee Against Mental Illness colleagues, and to resign from the editorial committee.
