The Thomas Freeman Award

RCPsych NI,  in collaboration with the Northern Ireland Association for the Study of Psychoanalysis, is pleased to announce that we are accepting entries for the 2019 Dr Thomas Freeman Award. Dr Freeman was a Founding Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and an Honorary Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society. Throughout his career he wrote prodigiously of his vast clinical experience, producing hundreds of articles and many books, the last of which was completed days before his death in 2002.  There are two Categories in the competition:

For ST 4-6 Trainees

For CT 1-3 Trainees

Prizes: The award in each of the categories will be £150, together with a commemorative medal.

Eligibility:  Trainees working in psychiatry in Northern Ireland and also anyone who is within two years of taking up a career grade post in Northern Ireland and who commenced a long case or article for publication as a trainee.

a) The award is for a long case or paper prepared with a view to publication, relevant to psychotherapy, whether psychodynamic, systemic, cognitive, behavioural, integrative therapies or other, as practiced in the field of psychiatry; 

b) The long case or paper should be approximately 2500 to 3500 words in length;

c) Entries will be judged by three consultant psychiatrists from Northern Ireland who are specialist in or who have a special interest in psychotherapy; and 

d) The Psychotherapy Faculty reserves the right not to award the prize if the entries are not adjudged to be of sufficiently high standard.

Applicants will be assigned a mentor to assist with their final submission. 

Preliminary proposals should be submitted by Thursday 1 August with final entries by Monday 16 September. The winners will be announced at the College’s Annual Prize Day on 2 October.
