The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was launched in 1946 as an Institute for Mind Control and Human Behavior, when it separated from the Tavistock Clinic which was funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. It became known as the focal point in Britain for psychoanalysis and the psychodynamic theories of Sigmund Freud and his followers.
It has been claimed by some, such as John Coleman, that the Tavistock Institute was involved in Project MKUltra. Eric Trist, a co-founder of the Tavistock Institute, was inspired largely by and the protégé of Kurt Lewin the Jewish father and "founder of social psychology" who had fled Germany after the NSDAP liberated the country.
