Robin Skynner (16 August 1922 in Cornwall – 24 September 2000 in Islington, London) was a psychiatric pioneer and innovator in the field of treating mental illness. As a young man during the Second World War Skynner was a Royal Air Force (RAF) pilot who flew the Mosquito twin-engined fighter bomber, and the destruction he was obliged to participate in drew him to psychiatry. Trained in group analysis and working as child psychiatrist and family therapist, he employed group-analytic principles in that therapeutic modality. He was a gifted teacher and practitioner of psychotherapy with individuals, groups, families, couples and institutions. He was also a prolific writer.
