Typescript notes for a lecture titled Roles and function of a psychiatric social worker to the Royal Medico-Psychological Association

Scope and Content

In his opening line Rodger addresses his audience by saying, "you were good enough to make me your President". Rodger became President of the Scottish Division of the Royal Medico-Psychological Association (now known as the Royal College of Psychiatrists) in 1965 so it is likely that this is the group he is addressing here.

With corrections.
