Tatiana Rosenthal (1885-1921) was a Russian psychoanalyst, physician and specialist in neurology.[1]

Rosenthal studied with Carl Jung at the Burghölzli and became a member of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society and the Berlin Psychoanalytic Society. In 1911 she returned to St. Petersburg to work as a neurologist at Vladimir Bekhterev’s Brain Institute. Bekhterev, though not himself converted to psychoanalysis, appointed Rosenthal as the head of the outpatient clinic, and allowed her to treat neurotic patients there with psychoanalysis. Interested in the psychology of art, Rosenthal published one paper which tried to explain Dostoevsky’s creative writing by his personal suffering.[2]

She committed suicide in 1921.[2]
