Colleagues' responses to the pregnant psychiatric resident.

Abstract

A number of researchers have suggested that the pregnant psychiatrist has many intrapsychic conflicts, as a result of the pregnancy, which influence her interactions with colleagues. In contrast, the authors suggest that colleagues' reactions to the pregnancy may be based on their intrapsychic conflicts, which create internal conflicts for the pregnant psychiatrist and affect her relationships with her colleagues. The authors present case reports involving psychiatric residents that illustrate their thesis.
