General: John Rickman. 'The Medical Section of the British Psychological Society' (appearing in series: 'British Medical Societies: Their Origin and Development'.) The Medical Press and Circular, September 7, 1938.

An informal journalistic history. Beginning with the rise of psychology in England, and discussing the part played by the remarkable Cambridge group (Ward, Rivers, Myers and McDougall) in founding a practical, experimental plus anthropological plus clinical plus applied-industrial kind of psychology in England; this history also outlines the parallel development abroad of psychopathology, and of the reorganization of the British Psychological Society into a body all-embracing but also sectioned. It shews the incursion of psychology (fired by the discovery [!] of mental pain, anxiety and guilt—a contribution of Freud) into fields hitherto regarded as unrelated or where the links were (if seen at all) felt to be rather ineffectual, viz. anthropology, criminology, law, sociology and even education and psychiatry.

This brief account, written for a general medical journal for general medical practitioners, manages to convey something of the way in which mental pain came to be included in the purview of mental science.
