Society holds awards ceremony

Thirteen leading psychologists were honoured by the Society yesterday - 19 April 2012 - at an awards ceremony held during the Society’s Annual Conference at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London WC2. The award winners have been giving special lectures during the event.

Dr Carole Allan, President of the British Psychological Society, says “The Society’s awards perform a vital function in recognising and promoting excellence across all facets of the discipline. Since our aim is to advance psychology as a whole, many awards are open to psychologists who are not members of the Society. My warmest congratulations to all the winners: they attest to the vibrancy and health of British psychology.”

The Society introduced two new awards for 2012. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognises significant and sustained contributions to psychology education and the Profession Practice Board’s Practitioner of the Year Award recognises, promotes and awards good practice and achievement in the previous year.
