Prof. Dr. Dipl.-Psych. Lutz Goldbeck – Obituary

Dear Colleagues,

Prof. Lutz Goldbeck died suddenly and unexpectedly on October 30th 2017. We are shocked by his very sudden passing. Lutz Goldbeck worked tirelessly for decades in the name of trauma survivors, particularly traumatized children. With tireless passion and commitment and his inherent perseverance he leveraged his expertise and experience to improve the therapy and care of traumatized and chronically ill children and youths.

Lutz Goldbeck was – above and beyond our professional organization – a respected dialogue partner in politics and sciences, he worked on the education and development of future psychological psychotherapists and was a key voice within the German psychotraumatology community.

Lutz Goldbeck is a huge loss, we have indeed lost an important person. We mourn an extraordinarily committed, highly educated and above all lovable person. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family and all those close to him. On behalf of the ESTSS board of directors.

Ingo Schäfer, Mariel Meewisse and Jana Javakhashvili.
