The Society for the Psychology of Women (Division 35 of APA) funds this award out of royalties from the book edited by Drs. Annette Brodsky and Rachel Hare-Mustin, Women and Psychotherapy: An Assessment of Research and Practice.

Content: Manuscripts on the broad topic of psychotherapy with women are eligible.  Research (quantitative and qualitative), clinical applications, clinical case studies, and theoretical review articles are welcome.

Judging: Psychologists with expertise on the psychotherapy with women will read the entries using a standard anonymous review procedure.  Judging will be made on the basis of scholarly rigor, clinical impact, theoretical creativity and innovation, methodological skills, clarity and style of presentation, in addition to its relevance and importance to psychotherapy with women.  A cover sheet with the author’s name, address, e-mail address, and telephone and fax numbers, along with the publication or presentation date, should accompany the paper.
