Catherine Carmichael 1952-2013

Geraldine Fogarty

Catherine Carmichael, an active member of the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society, a valued colleague, teacher, and friend in the Toronto Psychoanalytic Institute, died unexpectedly on 22 September 2013. Catherine's career as a psychoanalyst was part of a life-long and dedicated service to medicine and to the creative, generative capacities of the mind. Those who knew her struggled to respond to what seemed like a sudden impossibility, that our colleague and friend was no longer with us.

I first met Cathy at the Toronto Psychoanalytic Institute about eight years ago. She was in the year ahead of me, and since we were not in the same class, I gradually got to know her more personally in the psychoanalytic film group to which we both belonged, and then over the years, through various professional events and social gatherings. Eventually, we became good friends. There was a wonderful intellectual readiness and sure-footedness about Cathy that characterized whatever she undertook: psychoanalytic theory and practice (to which she was deeply committed); teaching, participation on committees; and her ongoing contribution to the furtherance of excellent practice among GP psychotherapists (having been a dedicated family practitioner for many years). I was looking forward to teaching with her this year for the first time and very much regret the loss of this opportunity.
