BPC Awards 2023

Usually, we hold an awards ceremony at our PPNow conference. This year, whilst the PPNow conference will not be running, we’re pleased to say the awards ceremony will take place at our 30th anniversary event on Saturday 4 November.

These awards celebrate outstanding individuals and organisations within our psychoanalytic community.

Nominations closed on 2 October, thank you for celebrating your colleagues and organisations. Award winners will be contacted by the end of October.

Innovative Excellence

This award celebrates a striking example of ground-breaking work. The innovative nature of the work can be in terms of clinical practice, research, or socially inclusive practice, such as working with sections of the community who may traditionally find access to therapeutic treatment difficult.

Outstanding Professional Leadership

This award recognises an individual in a position of leadership who has developed their role to make a significant and outstanding contribution to developing the position and/or influence of psychoanalytic/psychodynamic psychotherapy in the wider world.

Bernard Ratigan Award for Psychoanalysis and Diversity

This award applauds an individual or organisation that has significantly improved and/or developed inclusivity in matters of diversity such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, disability etc. in psychoanalytic practice and/or therapeutic treatment.

Diversity in Training

This award focuses on training and supervision that gives substantive and considered attention to thinking about diversity (in its broad definition to include race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender etc). This may include, for example, novel curriculum developments, projects to address inclusivity in supervision and training, programmes that address barriers to accessing training.

Lifetime Achievement

This award recognises those who have made significant, sustained contributions to the psychoanalytic profession over their career.
