Description: The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD) has established the NASSPD Mid-Career Investigator Award to recognize the achievements of mid-level investigators in the field of personality and personality disorders. A committee of distinguished peers 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 winner will receive an engraved glass award. The award will be announced to our membership at our Annual Conference.
