Sroufe selected as recipient of APA Division 7 Developmental Psychology Mentor Award
Alan Sroufe, professor emeritus at the Institute of Child Development, has been selected as this year's recipient of the Division 7 Developmental Psychology Mentor Award by the American Psychological Association. The award honors individuals who have contributed to developmental psychology through the education and training of the next generation of research leaders in developmental psychology. The award recognizes individuals who have had substantial impact on the field of developmental psychology by their mentoring of young scholars. APA also notes in the award letter, "This award has special meaning compared to some of the other awards because it not only indicates the impact on the field of one's individual research career but also the continued impact through the next generation of developmentalists, as well as one's outstanding mentoring." The award will be presented at the APA 2013 convention in Hawaii.
