1961 British Society of Criminology

The Scientific Group for the Discussion of Delinquency became the British Society of Criminology.

In its early years the British Society of Criminology looked to psychiatrists to play a prominent part in its affairs, but this slowly changed as criminologists began to question the importance of psychoanalytic theory and as psychiatrists became less interested in psychodynamics and more interested in organic and pharmacological problems.
