The Significance of a Bilingual Repertoire of Psychological Thinking: Discussion of Dr. Malone’s Paper

  • Saul L. Brown
Part of the The Downstate Series of Research in Psychiatry and Psychology book series (DSRPP, volume 3)


Are we saying things to each other that we already know? Yes and no. To a large degree, those of us presenting papers in this symposium are in a group who have evolved somewhat similar frames of reference drawn from mutually valued theoretical views. It appears that our relatively small group read similar literature back in the 1950s and 1960s, cathected similar concepts, and tried similar clinical interventions. Slowly but somehow inexorably, our individual experiences have converged in a conference such as this one. Even our frustrations are convergent, especially those related to teaching what Charles Malone calls a “bilingual” repertoire of psychological thinking to child psychiatry trainees. I would add to this difficulty the one of demonstrating such thinking to our more experienced colleagues.
