Dr. Blatner was born in 1937 in Los Angeles, where he grew up. In 1955, he began at the University of California in Berkeley for his undergraduate studies. He was awarded Phi Beta Kappa in his third year there, and then graduated with honors in a special field of cultural aspects of religion. He then attended medical school at the University of California San Francisco campus, graduating in 1963 (See Cartoons). After internship in Los Angeles, Dr. Blatner did specialty training in the psychiatric residency program at the Stanford University Medical Center. While there he discovered the therapeutic role playing approach called psychodrama, and this became one of his sub-specialty interests, integrated with a general exploration of other types of psychotherapy. After Stanford, he took a post-residency fellowship training in child and family psychiatry back in Los Angeles, and then he served in the U.S. Air Forces as a child and adult psychiatrist at a base in England. In 1972, Dr. Blatner began a private practice near Palo Alto, California. In 1979 he moved to Santa Rosa, CA, where he and his second wife Allee developed The Art of Play. In 1983 they moved to Texas where they could help Allee’s aging parents. From 1987-1994 Dr. Blatner was on the faculty of the University of Louisville School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science in Kentucky, where he became an Assistant Professor. He’s also worked in many other clinical settings, including hospitals, clinics, and private practice. Around 2001, he retired from practice, and has gradually reduced the levels of professional involvement. Until last year, he also served as executive or consulting editor for several journals. Dr. Blatner continues to occasionally teach classes, present at conferences, write papers for journals and chapters for books. Around 1998 Dr. Blatner was awarded the status of Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
