Scholarship and Research Award

This award is given to a person who has made significant contributions in advancing psychoanalytic psychology in the areas of theory, practice, and/or research.

Sponsor: Division 39

Description

Initially called the Scientific Award, the name was changed in 2002 in order to emphasize our division's solid commitment to both research and scholarship as part of our mission. This award is given to a person who has made significant contributions in advancing psychoanalytic psychology in the areas of theory, practice, and/or research. The award is somewhat artificially divided into research and scholarship, with the understanding that many nominees have made contributions in both areas. We want to emphasize the empirical basis for psychoanalytic psychology and its role in advancing scientific knowledge, as well as recognize psychoanalytic psychology as part of the wider social sciences and humanities. Honorees are expected to prepare a lecture that will be given as part of the award ceremonies during the spring meeting.

Eligibility

Members who have made significant contributions to psychoanalytic theory, practice, and/or research are eligible for this award.

How to Apply

Nominees are solicited from the board members and former honorees, evaluated by the Awards Committee and presented to the division Board of Directors, which makes the final determination of recipients. Please direct any questions to Usha Tummala, the current chair of this Committee.
