Memoriam Jeremy D. Safran, Ph.D.
NCSPP would like to express our sincere condolences regarding psychoanalyst Jeremy D. Safran, Ph.D., who was murdered in his Brooklyn home by an intruder on Monday, May 7, 2018. He was a beloved professor and dedicated mentor to many students. A leader in our field, he wrote or edited eight books and numerous articles and chapters. Dr. Safran was an experienced leader at New York’s New School for Social Research as a Director of Clinical Studies, Chair of his program, and the President of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. For his many achievements, the Society for Psychotherapy Research honored him with a Distinguished Research Career Award, while the APA’s Division 39 chose him for their Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychotherapy Research. Jeremy Safran will be remembered fondly by his colleagues and students, and our hearts go out to his family. He will be sorely missed.
