Three APA members were honored at APA’s Institute on Psychiatric Services in October in Orlando: Milton Viederman, M.D., Martin Fleishman, M.D., and Bryan H. King, M.D.

Viederman was the winner of the 2001 Psychiatric Services Video Award. The award, presented by Ian Alger, M.D., the institute’s multimedia consultant, was given in recognition of Viederman’s film “Psychological Engagement of the Medically Ill Patient and Family.” Viederman is a training and supervising psychoanalyst at the Columbia Psychoanalytic Center in New York, as well as a professor of clinical psychiatry at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

The Arnold L. van Ameringen Award was presented to Fleishman. The award, established in 1985, is given in recognition of outstanding contributions to the field of psychiatric rehabilitation. Fleishman was a pioneering force in psychiatric on-site treatment for residential care facilities in San Francisco—for many years the only psychiatrist serving such board and care homes in the city. He is writing a book on how psychiatric services should be rendered to severely mentally ill patients in residential care facilities, and he continues to fight for Medicare reimbursement for services provided in these homes.

King was the winner of the 2001 Frank J. Menolascino Award. The Menolascino Award, funded through a gift from the University of Nebraska, is given in recognition of significant contributions to psychiatric services for persons with mental retardation. Earlier in his career, King directed the Down syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome clinics while at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and Hospital. He was the first to explore the role of serotonergic, dopaminergic, and glutamatergic pathways in the mechanism of self-injury and has conducted numerous studies on the treatment of mental disorders comorbid with mental retardation. He has served as an expert consultant for the Justice Department to ensure proper treatment of children and adults with mental retardation in state facilities and is the chief of child and adolescent psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School. ▪
