Scotsman obituary of Professor Miller Mair

Dr David Smail has written an obituary of his fellow clinical psychologist Professor Miller Mair for the Scotsman.

He writes:

"Professor J.M.M. Mair, known universally by his middle name Miller, was a pivotal figure in the development of psychotherapeutic theory and practice in British clinical psychology in the second half of the last century. He was still elaborating and deepening his and our understanding of the field when he died suddenly and unexpectedly on 9 June.

"During the 1960s and 1970s the assault on rigid authority characteristic of the times took the form in clinical psychology of a reaction against the dominance of conventional psychiatry and a challenge to the dour hegemony of behaviourism in psychology generally."
