Founding Member Dies

The Board of MCPP celebrates and honors the life of Ellen VanDeMark and joins her family in condolence at her passing in December of 2020.

Ellen was in 1989 one of the founding members of the Michigan Psychoanalytic Council, parent to our own Michigan Council for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. She was active for more than twenty years in the organization as a teacher, analyst, and supervisor.  She was able to attend the 30 year anniversary banquet of MCPP in 2019 where she spoke movingly of the depth and importance of the psychoanalytic attitude.  She was a lifelong scholar of psychoanalysis, and even after her retirement invited students to her house to share their experience of readings. She touched the lives of many.
