"This book has two parts. The first gives the substance of lectures delivered in the Psychological Laboratory at Cambridge in the summer of 1919, and repeated in the spring of the present year at the Phipps Clinic of the Johns Hopkins Medical School, Baltimore, under the direction of Professor Adolf Meyer. The second part consists of appendices in which are republished occasional papers written as the result of clinical experience gained during the war. A few alterations have been made in these, chiefly in order to bring the terminology into line with that adopted in the body of the book, and in the second Appendix the original paper has been amplified. A few of the opinions expressed in these appendices differ in some respects from those of the lectures, but have been left as originally stated because they present alternative points of view which may possibly be nearer the truth than those adopted as the result of later deliberation. The general aim of the book is to put into a biological setting the system of psycho-therapy which came to be generally adopted in Great Britain in the treatment of the psycho-neuroses of war. This system was developed in the main at the Maghull Military Hospital under the direction of Dr. R.G. Rows"--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

William Halse Rivers Rivers, FRCP, FRS, (1864-1922) was an English anthropologist, neurologist, ethnologist and psychiatrist, best known for his work with soldiers during World War I who were suffering from shell shock. Rivers's most famous patient was the poet Siegfried Sassoon. He is also famous for his participation in the Torres Straits expedition of 1898, and his consequent seminal work on the subject of kinship. Conflict and Dreams was posthumously published in 1923 a year after Rivers's death and continues his theoretical reflection on his War experience as a therapist from his 1920 work 'Instinct and the Unconscious'

This video depicts William Rivers (1864-1922) as one of the most agile minds to influence the early development of anthropology. Originally trained as a doctor, he was asked to join a Cambridge expedition to the Torres Straits north of Australia. As he performed psychological tests on the islanders, he realized the important role played by relatives in the structure and working of these societies. He helped introduce a scientific approach to anthropology, and the new methods were put to the test at the turn of the century in a field study with the "Toda" tribe in southern India
