In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we inform you that our beloved colleague, Dr. Deanna Holtzman, passed away peacefully early this morning, Wednesday, August 24, 2016. She was home, surrounded by her family.

Dr. Holtzman was a true trailblazer. She was the first Ph.D. accepted for training at MPI, the first Ph.D. Training and Supervising Analyst, the first woman MPI President, and a very popular advisor, supervisor and instructor at our Institute. Dr. Holtzman founded the Institute’s program for academic candidates.

The funeral will be held at the Ira Kaufman Chapel at 18325 W. Nine Mile Road, Southfield, 48075 this Friday, August 26, 2016 at 12:00 noon. The telephone number for the Chapel is 248-569-0020.

Our sincere condolences go out to Dr. Holtzman’s family and friends.

For those who wish to do so, the family suggests memorial donations can be made to the Michigan Psychoanalytic Foundation.
