“Identifying the next generation of psychodynamic and biopsychosocial psychiatrists, educators, and/or leaders, and supporting their development is critical to the field of psychiatry,” says David Mintz, MD, director of psychiatric education. “That’s why, three years ago, we initiated the Austen Riggs Award for Excellence in Psychotherapy.”  

The annual award recognizes and supports the development of psychiatric residents who have demonstrated interest and ability in psychodynamic psychotherapy and/or psychodynamic psychiatry or have shown promise as researchers in biopsychosocial approaches to psychiatric practice, including psychotherapy.
