Arthur Malin M.D.

Obituary Condolences

June 5, 1925 - October 26, 2015 Art Malin was a passionate, empathic, generous human being. He loved life, his family, friends, his profession, learning, playing tennis and bridge at the Tennis Club, the LA Dodgers, Chicago-style hot dogs, and serving his Beverly Hills community. Art was born in Chicago, IL, to his parents, Milton and Anna. After serving in the Air Force, he attended medical school at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, did his medical internship at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, his residency in psychiatry at the Los Angeles Veteran's Administration Hospital, and his psychoanalytic training at the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. He became a Training and Supervising Analyst at five Los Angeles psychoanalytic institutes. Psychoanalysis, his psychoanalytic community, and, most especially, helping and treating his patients with his innate empathic abilities, were his ongoing passions. His vigorous professional open-mindedness led him to work in the style of Self Psychology, and he was a member of the original group studying with Heinz Kohut. Art wrote many articles and book chapters, and was always an active teacher in the psychoanalytic institutes. He was a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, and taught in the psychiatric training program there and at USC. In addition, Art was honored to be elected to the Beverly Hills Board of Education for eight years, played an instrumental role creating the Maple Center, and served on the Board of Directors at Vista del Mar Child and Family Services, where he also provided professional guidance. Arthur Malin, M.D., 90, died peacefully in Los Angeles, CA, with his wife of sixty-six years, Naomi, and family at his side. He was predeceased by his son Norman. He is also survived by his sister, Madeline; his son, Barnet, and daughter-in-law Jennifer; his two grandchildren, Lila and Miles; and his loving extended family. The funeral will be private. A donation in his honor may be made to Vista del Mar Child and Family Services, or a . Abbie, you were the most generous, compassionate man of all; we will always love and miss you. Sleep well, my love…
