In memoriam: Giovanni Liotti
We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to our colleagues from SITCC for the loss of Giovanni Liotti. Here follows a message from Michele Procacci:
On 9th April 2018, 73-year-old psychiatrist and therapist Giovanni Liotti passed away. He founded the Società Italiana di Terapia Comportamentale Cognitiva (SITCC – Italian Society of Behavioural-Cognitive Therapy) with Vittorio Guidano on 30th December 1972; at the beginning it was called Società Italiana della terapia del comportamento. He was also a founder member of the Association for the Research on Psychopathology of Attachment and Development.
Gianni was President of our Society (from 2000 to 2006) and most important he was also able to say the right word, advise and suggest a book to everyone. Last but not least he was a man who had lived his family, happiness and pain, and the recent disease with great humanity and ability to be close and comforting to others as much as possible.
We are crying for his loss and will try being worthy of what he left behind both under a human and cultural aspect.
