Your thoughts.......

I knew Al for 50+ years and respected him and his work and contribution to practicing pychologists.  I know all Psychology will miss him.
J G Benedict, PHD

Al was an innovator who followed his own path of discovery.  He was creative, generous, loving, and highly productive.  His many contributions--books, articles, tapes, etc.--will be part of the therapeutic enterprise for a long time.

I was very saddened to hear of Dr. Mahrer's passing. I met him once during a radio interview and I was very much affected by his strong personality, convictions and his vision of psychotherapy. He was a remarkable man and a revolutionary in his field. He will be missed by many. This is a great loss for everyone. However, there is much hope and optimism in that he has trained his students well and that his vision shall carry on.
Condolences to his family, friends and students - and a special word of sympathy is extended to Dr. H. Gontovnick, his devoted student and friend: May you carry Dr. Mahrer's message and teaching forward for the benefit of all. May you find the strength to bear this terrible loss.
