Abstract
According to a review of the literature, the psychological meaning of physical injury and impairing physical symptoms is particularly significant in the population constituting industrial workers, both male and female, where physical injury could be taken as confirmation of their fears regarding themselves and create further inhibition of occupation and personal function, expressed by inability to adapt to a new situation. To minimize the iatrogenic contributions to the development of psychopathology requires the careful attending to the many forces experienced by the injured person by providing human assistance within the capacity of one's own personality.
