Herbert S. Gaskill Award

The Herbert S. Gaskill, M.D. Award was established by the Denver Psychoanalytic Society to recognize scholarly writing by a candidate, PTP student, resident, or medical student on the psychoanalytic aspects of a topic of interest.  Award recipient must be a Society member, or student, candidate or faculty member of the Denver Institute of Psychoanalysis.  It is presented in honor of Dr. Herbert Gaskill, who was instrumental in bringing psychoanalytic education to Denver. He was a founding member and President of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society, Director of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado, School of Medicine, and President of the American Psychoanalytic Association. The award includes a certificate and cash prize of $500 for the best paper written on a psychoanalytic subject. The paper should explore the psychoanalytic aspects of an area of interest, and constitute more than a patient case report. The requested length is 15 to 20 double-spaced pages, including references. Reference and in-text citation style should follow that of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Deadline for submission of final drafts is April 15th each year.
