BROMBERG--Philip, PHD The William Alanson White Psychoanalytic Institute and Society mourn the passing of our esteemed colleague, Phil Bromberg. Phil was one of the luminaries of our field; his scholarly writings and teaching profoundly influenced many psychoanalysts. He will be remembered for his mentorship, brilliant mind, creative and often poetic writing and his incisive clinical theories.

Dear Mrs. Bromberg, Just a reflection I wanted to give: There will be many people that knew Dr. Bromberg and say many beautiful things, but you truly know his goodness and selflessness to hold close to you. The thing is, once someone like him becomes known, he belongs not only to you, but he belongs to everyone. A man for the ages who, in his own way, made life better for everyone. My sincere condolences on his passing. Dr. Edward Phillips

All words seem like a feebile attempt to describe a healer and a soul such as Philip Bromberg. The world has lost a shining light , he brought himself to the patient. With full heart and brillant mind he channeled love and understanding . Philip created a safe place to go to scary places in ones own soul.

I am an Obstetrician/Gynecologist with a very passionate interest in relational psychoanalysis. I corresponded once with him by phone and he generously sent to me a requested copy of something he wrote. I am passionate and self-taught, reading voraciously in this and associated fields for over 30 years. He encouraged me to pursue and write about my passions and my theory. I have read virtually everything he has published. He was a great human being, a fabulous writer and communicator. Largely because of him and James GROTSTEIN, I will make a major contribution to this field as a retirement project. I only hope I can enunciate and explain my very important integrations from multiple fields to clarify a very poorly understood aspect of developmental psychopathology and dissociation from trauma to describe in great detail a poorly understood symptom complex. Thank you Philip Bromberg for taking the time to empathically encourage a dedicated researcher such as myself to pursue and make an important contribution to this field. I regret that I never had the time to meet him in person.
