New Researcher Award

The clock is ticking-Submit to the President’s New Researcher Award: Deadline Monday, August 1

ABCT’s President, Michelle Craske, Ph.D. invites submissions for the 38th Annual President’s New Researcher Award. The winner will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $500. The award will be based upon an early program of research that reflects factors such as: consistency with the mission of ABCT; independent work published in high-impact journals; and promise of developing theoretical or practical applications that represent clear advances to the field.

While nominations consistent with the conference theme are particularly encouraged, submissions will be accepted on any topic relevant to cognitive behavior therapy, including but not limited to topics such as the development and testing of models, innovative practices, technical solutions, novel venues for service delivery, and new applications of well-established psychological principles.

Eligible papers must (a) be authored by an individual (an ABCT member) with five years or less post-training experience (e.g., post-Ph.D. or post-residency); and (b) have been published in the last two years or currently be in press.

Abramowitz, Ph.D., and Gail Steketee, Ph.D., (ABCT's President, Immediate Past-President, and President-Elect).

We recently revised our list serve in order to fix a problem; in doing so, we switched most members to a format that doesn't properly read HTML code [yes, that gibberish is HTML]. We will be moving everyone to a format called MIME digest, in which the emails from the preceding day are attached rather than embedded; that should clear up the gibberish. Please give us until the beginning of the next week to get this righted.

Questions can be addressed to Barbara Mazzella in the meantime at
