Biographical informationEdit

EducationEdit

He was educated at William Ellis School and Hertford College, Oxford where he took a degree in psychology. After a number of hospital placements he then he studied psychiatry under Sir Aubrey Lewis at the Maudsley.

In an interview he said my father "insisted on me training as a doctor. I wanted to train as a psychologist when I was an undergraduate and he only allowed me to read psychology at Oxford if I also read medicine. My father was the civil servant in charge of government training centres and industrial rehabilitation units after the war. When these had finished with ex-servicemen, they turned their attention to mental hospital patients. As a schoolboy, I followed my father's work in this unfamiliar field with great interest. He noted that psychologists, mainly industrial psychologists at that time, tended to have a chip on their shoulders about not being medically qualified. He therefore suggested that if I insisted on being a psychologist then I should train as a doctor." Psychiatric Bulletin
