    Call for Nominations for Books Published in 2017



    The American Board and Academy of Psychoanalysis (ABAPsa) is pleased to offer its 4th annual book awards in order to honor outstanding scholarship, raise awareness and visibility of the field, and educate the public on the value of psychoanalytic thought.  The Prize is designed to recognize scholars, researchers, and practitioners whose work is directly relevant to the advancement of psychoanalysis.  Books written in theoretical, clinical, and applied psychoanalysis are eligible for consideration.  In the spirit of pluralism that defines the specialty board, all theoretical orientations are welcome including classical, Jungian, Adlerian, object relations, ego psychology, self psychology, Modern, Lacanian, interpersonal-relational, and postmodern perspectives.  Subject matter may be disciplinary specific, interdisciplinary, or cross-disciplinary in nature and cover a wide variety of potential topics in the human, social, and behavioral sciences, arts and humanities, neuroscience, and cultural studies. 


    We are currently soliciting nominations from presses and authors who have published books in 2017 for the annual prize.  Publishers may nominate as many books from their list as they wish and authors may also provide self-nomination copies of their work.  Both authored books and edited anthologies are eligible for the Prize.

    One (1) copy of each book should be sent directly to the committee members at the specified addresses provided below no later than April 1, 2018 for consideration for the 2017 prize.  A short list of award finalists will be selected and the winner will be announced in the fall of 2018.  Winners will receive an attractive plaque from the ABAPsa.
