Award coordinator's report

Books, articles, career contributions, and student research are recognized through Div. 1 awards.

By Josephine Tan, PhD

The Div. 1 awards program celebrates excellence in research and other activities that contribute to the integration of the different subfields of psychology. Books, articles, career contributions, and student research are all recognized through various awards. Div. 1 also forwards nominations to APF for the Arthur W. Staats Lecture award. Read details about the award program.

Div. 1 had a very successful award year. We received many outstanding nominations which kept our award committees very busy. The 2014 award winners were announced at the awards ceremony that was held in the division hospitality suite on Saturday, Aug. 9 at APA. We were delighted to have several of the 2014 and 2013 award winners and former Div. 1 presidents joining us and whose presence was acknowledged.

This year, Div. 1 launched the Raymond Corsini Student Poster award in honor of Dr. Raymond Corsini's birthday centenary. Dr. Danny Wedding paid a tribute to his former mentor and collaborator at the awards ceremony and very graciously shared some fond memories. Dr. Corsini remains one of most prolific psychologists who exemplify general psychology.

My term as the Div. 1 awards coordinator has come to an end. It has been a real privilege and pleasure to serve. Along the way, I have been extremely fortunate to meet and come to know many very talented and dedicated colleagues. I want to thank all the award chairs, committee members, and judges whose hard work ensures the success of the awards program.

I also would like to extend a very warm welcome to Dr. Jocelyn Turner-Musa who takes over as the awards coordinator. She is wonderfully competent, organized, effective, and efficient. I can really think of no one better to run the awards program, and look forward to an exciting 2015 awards year.
