Panel discussion: TIHR & Tavistock Clinic: Historical Reflections & Thoughts for the Future Tavistock Enterprise
A panel discussion between three people who have had long associations with both the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust – David Armstrong, Michael Rustin and Jon Stokes. The panel was moderated by Susanna Rustin, a journalist at The Guardian, who introduced the panellists, put questions to them and facilitate discussion on their thoughts about the historical developments and current relationships between the two institutions.
A particular focus was on the changing historical context of the Tavistock’s work, from its radical beginnings in a period of social reconstruction, through its growth and development at mid-century, to a more recent climate in which its values and vision have been less in accord with those dominant in both public and private spheres. Hopes, fears and prospects for the future of the broader Tavistock enterprise were all explored during the discussion.
You can listen to the ArchLive recording of the discussion on the festival website.
