									     History of Psychiatry Lectures

   A Maudsley Education in the 60s
 Making Sense of Psychiatry and Counter-Culture
                    DR ANTHONY FRY
Psychiatry in the 1960s stood at a crossroads. Maudsley trainees were pulled in different
directions by the teachings of psychoanalysis, existentialism and the biomedical model. Anthony
Fry, who trained at Maudsley from 1968 to 1972 and later became a consultant at Guy’s
Hospital, reflects on a personal journey through the philosophical debates on mind and
madness, with insights on key figures and fashions in a radical period in British psychiatry.
