Congratulations to Dr. William Gottdiener (Director of Clinical Training) who was just awarded the "Scholarship and Research Award" by the Division of Psychoanalysis (Division 39) of the American Psychological Association at its Annual Spring Meeting in San Francisco. This award is given to a person who has made significant contributions in advancing psychoanalytic psychology in the areas of theory, practice, and/or research. What an honor!

Congratulations also to Drs. Cynthia Calkins and Elizabeth Jeglic! They are the winners of the Fay Honey Knopp Award from the New York State Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (NYS ATSA) and NYS Alliance of Sex Offender Service Providers! They will be honored at the NYS ATSA and Alliance conference next month in Albany.

The Fay Honey Knopp Award commemorates the memory of Fay Honey Knopp's advocacy, support and vision of compassion and caring in the treatment of individuals who have engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior; and her caring, support and mentoring of individuals taking on the challenge of caring for this clinical population. The Fay Honey Knopp Award will be presented to a person studying, working or volunteering in the field of sexual abuser treatment, research or sexual abuse research whose work exemplifies the qualities and vision of human goodness that Fay Honey Knopp brought to the field and whose work and spirit is an inspiration to others.
