Johanna K. Tabin Press Book Proposal Prize
The aim of this prize is to encourage psychoanalytic writing by Division 39 members who have yet to publish a psychoanalytic book.
This is the fifth annual contest for a first book by a psychoanalytic author. The winner receives a $1000 cash prize, certificate of recognition, and guarantee of publication by the APA Press. The aim of this prize is to encourage psychoanalytic writing by Division 39 members who have yet to publish a psychoanalytic book. We look for good writing, originality, as well as clinical and scholarly relevance. While some previously published material may be included, the proposed book should consist primarily of new work and promise to be an original and coherent monograph. Edited collections of previously published papers are not acceptable, nor are edited volumes of contributions by more than one author. Simultaneous submissions to other publishers will disqualify the entry.
Division 39 and APA Press announce that beginning in 2012, the Johanna K. Tabin/Division 39 APA Book Proposal Prize will be awarded at the Division 39 Spring Meeting, consequently, the deadline for submissions has been changed.
Annual submissions are due by December 31.

Ralph E. Roughton Paper Award
The Ralph Roughton Paper Award was established in 1998 to honor the founding Chairperson of APsaA’s Committee on Gay and Lesbian Issues. In its first decade, it gave formal recognition to outstanding published papers that deepened our psychoanalytic understanding of gay men and lesbians. In 2007, the mission of the Award was changed. In the years that it is awarded, the Ralph Roughton Paper Award is now given to an unpublished manuscript that, in the opinion of the judges, makes an original and outstanding contribution to the psychoanalytic understanding and/or treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered individuals.
The Award carries a cash prize of $500 and the author of the winning paper will be invited to present it at the National Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association in New York every January. The winner may submit his/her paper for review by the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association and, if accepted, it will be published as the winner of the Ralph Roughton Paper Award.
