The Passing of Harold Searles_1918-2015

I'm sad to report the passing today (1918-2015) of one of the great figures in American psychoanalysis - Harold Searles - who is best remembered for his pioneering work on the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenia.

Harold F. Searles (born 1918) is one of the pioneers of psychiatric medicine specialising in psychoanalytic treatments of schizophrenia. Harold Searles has the reputation of being a therapeutic virtuoso with difficult and borderline patients; and of being, in the words of Horacio Etchegoyen, president of the IPA, “not only a great analyst but also a sagacious observer and a creative and careful theoretician”.
