Typescript lecture notes titled Mental health training of professional groups

Scope and Content

Rodger states "I fear that in asking a psychiatrist to deal with the training of other professional groups there is an assumption that he knows more about mental health than in fact he does". So it would seem that this lecture was used to train a group of health professionals about psychiatry. It does not sound as if he is lecturing his own psychological medicine students. Lecture covers Rodger's views on the problems which arise in the education of professional groups and the groups of people he thinks would benefit from practical training in the field of mental health such as the clergy, lawyers, social workers, and teachers.
