Allan Fromme

Psychologist, writer

Dr. Allan Fromme, a psychologist and writer known for his warmhearted, common-sense approach to life’s day-to-day concerns in his many TV and radio appearances, died Jan. 30 in Sarasota, Fla. He was 87.

Native New Yorker and Columbia U. grad spent 50 years as a therapist in the city, taught at City College of New York, Sarah Lawrence and Columbia and lectured often. But he was best known for his frequent broadcast appearances to offer advice. He was also known for his many articles in popular magazines and for his eight books, including “ABC of Child Care,” “Our Troubled Selves: A New and Positive Approach” and “The Book for Normal Neurotics.”

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Babette Brandt Fromme; a daughter; a son; four grandchildren; and a great-grandchild.
