Joan Tuttle Freyberg was born in New York City and it was there that she built her career and developed her professional life as a psychologist and psychoanalyst.
She obtained her doctoral degree in psychology at the City College of New York and studied psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytic Institute of the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, where she subsequently became a supervisor, teacher and training analyst. Joan was one of the founders of the Postgraduate Psychoanalytic Society and it was largely thanks to her, that the Society became affiliated with the IFPS, which she served as Deputy Secretary General from 1983 to 1989. She also served as president of her own society from 1991 to 1993.
Joan died on September 12th, 1994, at home, as she had wished, surrounded by members of her family and by close friends. She had fought a long and courageous battle with her illness, believing, as was characteristic of her, that she would triumph and so go on to resume her customary celebration of life. Joan was a woman of great courage, energy and verve. Even as she neared the end, she continued to take her usual vivid interest in everything around her, having long talks with members of her family and friends and delighting in the company of her grandchildren.
Joan had a special love for literature and music. She was also an inveterate traveler and had a keen and lively interest in people and cultures far removed from her own. At the same time, she treasured the weekends spent at their country home with her husband, Stanley Miller.
