The Clinical Essay Prize—Of the British Psycho-Analytical Society

Eric Brenman

The Clinical Essay Prize was founded in 1932 by William Penrose and is now administered by the British Psycho-Analytical Society. It is open to competition every second year.


i. The essay must be in the English language in double-spaced type-script on quarto paper with an ample left-hand margin.

ii. It should be submitted in triplicate.

iii. It should be sent to the Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the British Psycho-Analytical Society. All copies of the essay submitted become ipso facto the property of the Society.

iv. The essay should not have been published in any book, journal or other form of publication and should not have been read to, or have formed the subject of discussion at, any formally constituted meeting of any society or institution. This does not preclude the author from having discussed his clinical material with colleagues.


The closing date shall be 31 March, 1983.


Entry for the Prize is limited to psychoanalysts (members, associate members and registered students of the International Psycho-Analytical Association or of its component societies) who have not previously published a paper in a recognized psychoanalytic journal.


The essay shall consists of a clinical record of a case treated by psychoanalysis. It should illustrate clearly the events and changes in the mental life of the patient and their relation to the external environment. In awarding the Prize the judges will pay attention to acuity of observation and the clarity with which the facts are stated.
