Michael I. Rothburd, PhD
aka - "bman"

1941 - 2018

It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of BSF's founding member and first President, Dr. Michael Rothburd. Mike left us on December 5, 2018 after an extended illness. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Ohio University and following graduation moved his family to Tampa in 1970. Mike served as a professor at the University of Tampa, ran a Hillsborough County clinic, and established a private clinical psychology and biofeedback practice that served his patients for over 45 years.

Mike will be remembered for his expansive intellect, esoteric humor, passion for jazz, and running commentary from the back of the room at BSF workshops. In true form, he sent this advice to those attending the recent BSF 40th anniversary dinner: "Maintain optimal impedance and never ever take a personal check." He will be greatly missed.

A Memorial Service for Mike was held Sunday, December 9 at his temple, Congregation Schaarai Zedek. In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Condolences may be expressed online at
