The 2017 Gradiva Awards
The annual Gradiva® Awards for the best published, produced, or publicly exhibited works that advance psychoanalysis are presented by the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis at a special awards ceremony during our annual conference each fall in NYC.
Each winner receives a handsome brass plaque etched with the image of Gradiva, which is based on a Pompeiian relief similar to one that hung in Freud’s office. An additional award that includes a $500 scholarship is given to the best student paper that has not been previously published.
