The award committee was expansive in their praise of the book, which offers an innovative theory regarding the workings of the human mind. The committee commented that Wilma did a particularly impressive job integrating material from several areas of psychology, suggesting many fruitful approaches through which to explore associations among cognition, emotion, and the environment.

Auke Tellegen Wins APA Award!

Congratulations to Auke Tellegen!

Dear Colleagues,

Please join me in congratulating Professor Emeritus Auke Tellegen. Auke won the Distinguished Contributions to Assessment Psychology award from Section IX of Division 12 (Society of Clinical Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. The award was presented last week at the annual meeting of the APA.

Along with the award, the honoree is invited to present a talk on a topic of his/her choosing. Auke's talk was entitled "Feeling, Thinking, Acting: Real Dimensions of Personality and Psychopathology, or a Persistent Tradition, or Both?". I am told that the talk proved to be provocative, entertaining and inspiring.

Congratulations, Auke, on this prestigious award!

Regards,
Monica
