Brief, nonintensive psychotherapy produced a rapid, complete and permanent cure of hyperemesis gravidarum (pernicious vomiting in pregnancy). The treatment involved identification and amelioration of some common, superficial sources of anxiety during pregnancy. This method can be utilized by a nonpsychiatric physician and is recommended as quick, effective, safe and inexpensive.
