Deadline: September 18, 2018

The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) is calling for nominations for the 2018 Award for Excellence in Journalism. The Award recognizes professional reporting of outstanding merit that contributes in an exceptional way to the public understanding of psychoanalytic and psychological principles and phenomena. Nominated work need not be specifically about psychoanalysis or psychotherapy per se but can advance or challenge the understanding of human relationships/behavior and/or the life of the mind.

Founded in 1911, the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) is the oldest national psychoanalytic organization in the nation. APsaA as a professional organization for psychoanalysts, focuses on education, research and membership development. In addition to the national organization, APsaA’s membership includes 32 approved training institutes and 40 affiliate societies throughout the United States.
