APA invites applications for the Blanche F. Ittleson Research Award, Agnes
Purcell McGavin Award for Prevention, and Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for
Distinguished Career Achievement in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. These
awards are given to psychiatrists who have made significant contributions to
child and adolescent psychiatry. They will be presented at APA's 2005 annual
meeting next May in Atlanta.
The Blanche F. Ittleson Research Award recognizes published results of
research in child and adolescent psychiatry. This research promises to foster
important advances in promoting the mental health of children and adolescents.
A psychiatrist or a group of psychiatric investigators either must have
published this research within five years or have it officially accepted for
publication in the near future.
The Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Prevention recognizes a psychiatrist
who has been successful in research or policy that is recognized as
contributing to primary prevention of mental illness among children and
adolescents. The winner will be selected from nominations by an APA member
telling how the nominee's work has achieved its goal.
The Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Distinguished Career Achievement in
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry recognizes a psychiatrist whose career
demonstrates success in research, teaching, publications, clinical care, or
policy. Applications for this award should include six copies of a letter from
an APA member telling how the nominee's career has contributed to American
child and adolescent psychiatry and six copies of the nominee's CV.
