A Tribute to Robert Wallerstein

A Tribute to Robert Wallerstein

by Herbert J. Weiner, PhD, MSW

 

I have been a student of psychoanalysis for nearly 50 years, and was always impressed by the balanced, systematic presentations that Bob made. He was fair to all schools and weighed them rigorously without any axe to grind. His thinking and logical voice outlasted the physical frailties of age.

Personally, he was always cordial and friendly, even though I am unlicensed. He was never a snob and treated me as a colleague.

In essence, he was a model psychoanalyst and credit to the profession.

While we are greatly saddened at his passing, he has left a path that we must follow in honor of his memory.

Recommendation for Proposed Structure Model to be considered by the Transition Committee

Recommendation for Proposed Structure Model to be considered by the Transition Committee

by Catherine Witzling, PhD, LCSW, Newsletter Editor

 

It is probably well known to our readers that in the wake of the departure of our Chief Operating Officer Jeff Miller, a Transition Committee has been formed, charged with considering the way SFCP functions and potentially suggesting improvements. We are including a summary of material, with relevant quotes, that appeared in a hyperlink to the President’s Message last month, so that members who don’t follow hyperlinks can see and understand the changes proposed by the Transition Committee. We are taking our lead from the Committee, which has said that these significant changes “should be discussed carefully.”
