In the 1930s, when theories of dynamicpsychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and therelationship between medicine andpsychiatry were still in flux, Helen FlandersDunbar carved a theoretical niche forpsychosomatic medicine--a holistic,organismic niche.She established the Journal ofPsychosomatic Medicine, serving as its chiefeditor from 1938 to 1947, and, in 1942 wasinstrumental in founding the AmericanPsychosomatic Society.http://www.webster.edu/~woolflm/dunbar.html
