Fred Zimring was one of the United States' leading person-centred figures. I knew him as a brilliant, sensitive and supportive person. I particularly appreciated his openness and presence. He was an inspiration to a lot of person-centred theoreticians and practitioners. One of his main interests was in the nature of empathy. The person-centred community will miss him very much.
Fred was a member of the international staff of our Austrian association APG since 1991. He died on August 22, 2000.

A list of his publications can be found here.

Here you can read the paper he prepared for the Chicago Conference in June (ICCCEP 2000), but was unable to present personally: Empathic Understanding Grows the Person.

On September 1, there will be a memorial service for Fred Zimring, at 4 PM., Church of the Covenent, 11205 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, on the University campus. (Message John Shlien)

Mary Bourne Kilborn worked in the Counselling Unit at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. At several person-centred conferences she dealt with certain aspects of the nature of the therapeutic relationship.

Mary Kilborn was a participant of the Second Person-Centred Colloquium at Kranichberg, Austria in July 1999, convened by the Austrian PCA. At this occasion I learned to know her and to value her contributions to the colloquium. I will rememorate her as a  wise and gentle person. Her article about the meeting will be published in PERSON 1 (2000) this autumn.

Mary Kilborn died unexpectedly during the Chicago Conference on June 28, 2000. She also had planned to be at the conference, but got severly ill two weeks before.
