    IFP Research Award: Call for Nominations

    Dear IFP Community,

    This is a call for nominations for the 2022 IFP Research Award. IFP Research Awards seek to foster a broad spectrum of psychotherapy research that furthers the purposes of IFP, with special emphasis on studies relating to cultural issues, psychotherapy delivery, clinical excellence, and training.

    The IFP Research Committee accepts nominations for the following three awards, which will rotate each year:

    1. Young researchers who have completed a doctoral dissertation and published a minimum of 3 research papers in refereed journals;

    2. Mid-career researchers who have conducted and published important research beyond the post-dissertation level;

    3. Distinguished senior researchers whose research and publications represent a lifetime of significant achievements.

    For the current year, nominations are invited for the Mid-Career Researcher Award.

    Nominations can be made by:

    (a) Member societies represented by their officials, (b) individuals who are members of IFP member organizations, and (c) IFP Individual members.

    A nomination must include: (1) a completed nomination form (please click here to open it), (2) a letter of recommendation by the nominating person/society, (3) a current Curriculum Vitae, (4) copies of the publications on which the decision will be made, and (5) a brief statement by the nominee summarizing his/her work and explaining how it is related to the aims of IFP. Additional letters of recommendation may be included or submitted separately by any colleague familiar with the nominee’s work.

    All documents should be sent as email attachment to the IFP Awards Committee chair, Prof. Chiara Rafanelli (Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. È necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo.)

    The deadline for nomination is March 31st 2022.

    The IFP Research Committee, in its function as Awards Committee, will propose an awardee and the IFP Executive Board will decide about the proposal. The award will be granted in Spring following the submission with a diploma, as well as an official declaration in the IFP Newsletter. The awardee and her/his work will then be presented at the IFP World Congress of Psychotherapy (which takes place every 4 years) following the distinction. If feasible, the recipient of the award will be invited to this meeting.
