dc.description.abstractDr Janet Carr died peacefully at home on 17 March 2020, a few days short of her 93rd birthday. Janet was born in China in 1927 to missionary parents and after their return to the UK she was educated England, graduating in Psychology from Reading University in 1948. There she became close friends with Alan and Ann Clarke, whose research in intellectual disability had a significant influence on her own career. Indeed, it was Alan Clarke who persuaded Janet to apply for the course in clinical psychology that had just started at the Maudsley Hospital and she became part of only the second intake for this new profession. At the time, the students were only allowed to complete assessments; treatment was not considered a role for a clinical psychologist!
