The American Board and Academy of Psychoanalysis (ABAPsa) is pleased to offer its 5th 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 post-modern perspectives. Subject matter may be disciplinary specific, inter-disciplinary, or cross-disciplinary in nature and cover a wide variety of potential topics in the human, social, and psychological sciences, arts and humanities, neuro-science, and cultural studies.
We are currently soliciting nominations from presses and authors who have published books in 2018 for the annual prize. Publishers may nominate as many books from their relevant catalogue 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 May 1, 2019 for consideration for the 2018 prize. A short list of award finalists will be selected and the winner will be announced in the fall of 2019. Winners will receive an attractive plaque from the ABAPsa, and will be recognised on our web-site.
