The Psychiatrist: God Bless the Children was the pilot film for the brief TV series The Psychiatrist, which ran as part of Universal's Four in One drama wheel from 1970 to 1971. Roy Thinnes stars as progressive psychiatrist James Whitman, with Luther Adler as his conservative mentor, Dr. Bernard Altman. Whitman's particular specialty is the then-new group therapy method, which he utilizes on a cluster of disturbed children and teenagers. The performances are better than the dialogue, which leans towards Tract. This TV movie was released in non-network syndication as Children of the Lotus Eater.
