Rozsika Parker Prize 2015
Rozsika Parker, author of Torn in Two: The Experience of Maternal Ambivalence and The Subversive Stitch: Embroidery and the Making of the Feminine, represented WPF/FPC on the BJP's Board for many years. She remained a member of the Journal's Editorial Advisory Panel until her death in 2010. She was well known for her commitment to creativity, in both art and clinical practice, and our Prize, now in its third year, focuses on a critical engagement with this theme.
The Journal is particularly interested in factors that support creativity in clinical or theoretical work, and those that may militate against it. In addition to the focus on creativity, the application of psychoanalytic theory to questions of gender, art, literature, film and music is also welcomed. Authors should consult the BJP's submission guidelines (particularly in relation to confidentiality, where clinical material is concerned) and prepare their work with the Journal's Aims and Scope statement in mind. Advice will be available should there be questions concerning confidentiality, or eligibility to submit work.
The Prize has two entry routes: a Student Path and a Post-Qualification Path. Authors should indicate under which route they wish to be considered.
Students or qualified clinicians are invited to submit original papers on adult, child, couple, or group psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, on clinical, theoretical or research topics. The Student path is open to students on an initial clinical training, who are either currently in training or who have qualified within the last 12 months.
