Professor Charles Spielberger - Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce that our Honorary Vice President, Professor Charles Spielberger passed away on June 12th. He is survived by his wife, Carol, and his son, Nicholas.

Dr Spielberger was an award winning psychologist whose groundbreaking research into stress and anxiety contributed to the field internationally. Awards included the American Psychological Association Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology. After his retirement, he continued in his research activities running the Center for Research in Behavioral Medicine & Health Psychology. He was supportive of the development of coaching psychology.

We hope you will join us in thinking of his wife, Carol and family during this difficult time. We have included links to his obituaries below should you wish to celebrate his life and achievements or leave a tribute. The International Society for Coaching Psychology will publish a fuller obituary in our journal, Coaching Psychology International.

Prof Stephen Palmer
