The four sections of the EFPP – adult individual, child and adolescent, group, and psychoanalytic family and couple psychotherapy – are invited to participate and submit contributions for the EFPP Research Award. In this file you will find the general guidelines for the EFPP Research Award. The concrete procedure is as follows: the work should be sent to our president, Maria Eugenia Cid Rodriguez. She will forward it in anonymous form to Ulrich Schultz-Venrath and me for evaluation. The result will be ratified by the Board and then communicated to the authors. We ask for submission of papers by 31 October 2020. The award ceremony will take place on during the Delegates Meeting on Friday, 5th March 2021 in Berlin. We are looking forward to innovative work!
