In 1932 Wilfred Bion joined the Tavistock Clinic.
He was part of a new generation of recruits at the Tavi. This cohort also included: Leonard Browne, HV Dicks, Mary Luff and Charles Berg.
Several of these came under the influence of JA Hadfield, who at that time was responsible for much of the training.
Bion was particularly close to Hadfield and went with him to the Portman Clinic in 1933, where he is listed among their earliest staff.
