Francesc Tosquelles (Reus, August 22, 1912 – Granges-sur-Lot, September 25, 1994) was a Catalan psychiatrist. He is credited as one of the creators of institutional psychotherapy, an influential movement in the second half of the 20th century.

The Martinican doctor and later revolutionary activist Frantz Fanon was one of his students, who then used his techniques to some degree of success while living in Blida, Algeria, in the mid-1950s.
