Description: The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD) has established the NASSPD Senior Investigator Award to recognize the achievements of senior investigators in the field of personality and personality disorders. The Board of the NASSPD will make the selection. The award will recognize an individual whose work has influenced the field through his or her overall professional and scientific productivity, and through contributions that have increased our understanding of personality and personality disorders or their treatment.

The award includes a one-year membership in the NASSPD and complimentary attendance at the NASSPD dinner.
