Collected Works of Charles Berg


About the Series

Charles Berg (1892-1957) trained medically at St Thomas’s Hospital, but before he could qualify the First World War broke out. He served in several medical positions throughout the war, having been released to obtain his medical qualification. After the war he started his career in general practice, but more interested in the causation of illness, went on to train firstly as a psychiatrist, then as a psychoanalyst, working at the Tavistock Clinic for seventeen years. During his time there under the founder Crichton-Miller he learnt to treat patients from the point of view of psychotherapy and eventually opened his own psychiatric and analytical practice.

Out of print for many years, the Collected Works of Charles Berg is a great opportunity to revisit some of his finest works including his ‘Sort of Autobiography’. This set will be a useful resource for those interested in the history of psychology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, queer studies and beyond.
