“Fainting School Girls” – The Naked Lady Who Stood On Her Head
Dr. Small describes this unusual episode from his book, “The Other Side of the Couch” (“The Naked Lady Who Stood on Her Head” in hard back). While training in psychiatry in Boston, he investigated an outbreak of mass hysteria at a suburban elementary school. Over 40 students were hospitalized and officials were baffled about the cause. Dr. Small showed that psychological stress led to the epidemic, and early childhood losses put many children at greater risk.
