Arthur W. Staats Lecture for Unifying Psychology
The Arthur W. Staats Lecture was established in 1997 by Peter S. Staats, MD, in honor of his father, Arthur W. Staats, PhD. This award is funded through APF after nomination by Div. 1 (Society for General Psychology). Each year, the lecturer delivers an address on a body of work which has held great significance for many fields of psychology, or has the potential to be extrapolated to have unifying power within the discipline of psychology as a whole.
The winner will be announced at the APA Annual Convention the year of submission.
The awardee of this award will be expected to give an invited address at the subsequent APA convention in 2014 and also to provide a copy of the award presentation for inclusion in the newsletter of the society (The General Psychologist).
The award is dated for the year in which the lecture is presented.
The awardee will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $1,000 to help defray travel expenses for that convention.
