We are deeply saddened by the announcement that Univ. Prof. Dr. Peter F. Schmid died on Tuesday 15th September 2020, having sustained major injuries in a serious car accident.
We mourn the loss of a dear colleague, mentor and friend. His books, articles and lectures have fundamentally shaped and developed the person-centred approach over decades, both in Austria and worldwide, he lived the person-centred approach with all his heart and he will be greatly missed.
Peter is regarded as the founder of the dialogical approach in person-centred psychotherapy and in 2009 he received the Carl Rogers Award from the American Psychological Association (APA) for “outstanding contributions to the theory and practice of Humanistic Psychology.”
Our deepest sympathy goes to his family, and all those to whom he was close to.
An online book of condolences, where you can leave a message has been opened here.
