Nevenka Tadić (Serbian Cyrillic: Невенка Тадић) (born 1926 in Bijeljina, Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a Serbian psychiatrist most noted for her work in the psychotherapy of children.[1]

She was born Nevenka Kićanović (Невенка Кићановић). Her mother from Raduč village in Lika came to Brodac village near Bijeljina at the age of 16 and got married there. Nevenka's father, Strahinja Kićanović, was killed in 1942 by the Ustaše in Jadovno concentration camp, during the World War II genocide.[2] After the war, she got her medical degree from the University of Belgrade's Faculty of Medicine. She specialized neuropsychiatry in Sarajevo, where she has worked from 1954 to 1962. In 1957, she went to Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris for further education.[1] There, she worked alongside some of the most notable French psychoanalysts such as Serge Lebovici and René Diatkin. Afterwards, she has worked in Belgrade in the Mental Health Institute and, as a professor, on the Faculty of Defectology (today renamed to Faculty of Special education and Rehabilitation).[1] She is an author of numerous books and articles, mainly related to the psychoanalysis of children.[3]

Nevenka Tadić currently lives in Belgrade with her husband, Serbian philosopher Ljubomir Tadić, whom she met while studying at the University of Sarajevo and with whom she has two children — daughter Vjera and son Boris.[4] Her son, Boris Tadić, is the president of Serbia since 2004, as well as the leader of Democratic Party.
