Jan Lee Prize for Analysis and the Arts

The Jan Lee Prize for Analysis and the Arts is awarded to a paper published in UK psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic Journals in the last year that demonstrates a creative approach to the arts from an analytic perspective. The ‘arts’ is defined broadly to include film, music, television, dance and the fine arts generally. The prize is an award of £500 given to the author directly.

We are pleased to announce that the 2014 prize has been awarded to:

Anders Zachrisson for his paper

Oedipus the king: Quest for self-knowledge – denial of reality. Sophocles’ vision of man and psychoanalytic concept formation

published in the April 2013 issue of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis

Michael Fordham Prize

The Michael Fordham prize is awarded annually for the paper published in the JAP in the previous year that demonstrates the most creative and original approach to clinical analytic thinking. The prize of £250 is awarded by the Editors in consultation with the Journal Editorial Committee.

Michael Fordham believed that clinical work must always be at the heart of analytic thinking since it provides the data on which theory is based and the context in which it must be tested. The prize aims to promote this approach to the development of analytical psychology.

The 2014 prize has been jointly awarded to:

Richard Carvalho

Synchronicity, the infinite unrepressed, dissociation and the interpersonal (June 2014. Vol. 59:3)

Christian Maier

Intersubjectivity and the creation of meaning in the analytic process (November 2014. Vol. 59:5)

This journal has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to grow with the times, illuminating not only what analytical psychology has been as a discipline but also how it may continue to develop to serve the psyche responsibly and well.
John Beebe, First US Editor, JAP

The JAP plays a unique role in the Jungian community, keeping practising clinicians up to date with contemporary research in the arts and sciences and providing stimulating discussion on the theory and practice of analytical psychology today
