This study in pediatric ethology demonstrates that there is no need for wild guesses and speculations as to the causes of behavioural abnormalities. Based on solid observations over an extended time, the Tinbergens present a coherent theory that does justice to the most diverse factors. The proposed therapy has yielded notable results.
