Toy Caldwell-Colbert Award for Distinguished Educator in Clinical Psychology
The Outstanding Clinical Educators Award honors psychologists who display excellence in mentoring clinical psychology graduate students, interns, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. It recognizes those individuals who have been outstanding in supporting, encouraging and promoting education and training, professional and personal development, and career guidance to junior colleagues.
Qualities that can contribute to a good mentor include:
Providing guidance in research related to clinical psychology.
Providing guidance in education and teaching related to clinical psychology.
Providing guidance in public policy related to clinical psychology.
Acting as a successful role model.
Fostering the development of talents.
Acting as an advocate and guide and a “friend” with concern for students and junior colleagues and people and support them through their personal development.
Be supportive on both a personal and professional level.
Displaying a long-term commitment to mentoring.
This award seeks to recognize those individuals who truly go out of their way to mentor more junior colleagues, honoring them for efforts which often go unnoticed—but not unappreciated.
The Society and the American Psychological Foundation encourage applications from individuals who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability and sexual orientation. Candidates can be simultaneously considered for multiple awards, although a psychologist may receive only one Division 12 award in any given year. No voting members of the Division 12 Board of Directors will be eligible to receive awards from the Division while serving their term.
Nominations must include a CV and at least one letter of endorsement. Self-nominations are permitted and should include at least one external endorsement.
