Frank S. Williams, MD: 1934-2018

Frank S. Williams, MD

Frank S. Williams, MD, an active member of the medical staff as an attending in the Department of Psychiatry since 1965, has died. He was 84.

Williams was the former chief of Family, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Cedars-Sinai. He was an advisor to the Cedars-Sinai Share and Care Program. He served as the director of the Division of Child Psychiatry from 1985 to 1994 and directed The Julia Ann Singer Preschool Psychiatric Center.

Williams developed and provided guidance to the Cedars-Sinai Families of Divorce programs. He is past president of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry. For many years, his work has been in the area of child custody matters, which has included his writings on “The Prevention of Parentectomy”—a phrase and concept developed by and associated with him.

Williams’ contributions and invaluable service to the medical center and to the community will be greatly missed.
