The Marilyn Monroe Children's Fund and the work of the Tavistock Clinic

The Tavistock Clinic, in collaboration with Victor Gollancz, announces the establishment of the Marilyn Monroe Children's Fund Following the interest of the late Marilyn Monroe, this Fund will support projects to investigate the effects of deprivation and the parental emotional problems on the development of children, and new methods of attempting to ameliorate these effects.

The Tavistock Clinic is a National Health Service outpatient clinic which provides consultations and various types of psychodynamic psychotherapy for adults, adolescents and children and their families. It offers postgraduate training to a wide range of mental health professionals and is a resource of consultative skills that are used to support colleagues in the community. The Tavistock Clinic is not just concerned with psychiatric conditions but with a whole range of psychological difficulties that interfere with normal development.

Not all these wide-ranging concerns fall within the remit of the National Health Service. The Tavistock Clinic Foundation has been established to fund projects which cannot be supported by limited NHS resources. Research and development in training and innovative practice (in training and in new clinical techniques) are examples of such projects.

A press conference given at the Tavistock Clinic by the Tavistock Clinic Foundation on 17 February 1987 announced the uses to which the Fund will be put. It was chaired by Dr Anton Obholzer, Chairman of the Professional Committee of the Tavistock Clinic. The speakers were Gloria Steinem, author of Marilyn, and three members of the Tavistock Clinic: Judith Trowell, Chairman of the Child and Family Department; Margaret Rustin, Top Grade Child Psychotherapist; and Margot Waddell, Principal Child Psychotherapist.
