Award Winners



The Society for Research in Psychopathology presents eight awards each year.

Joseph Zubin Award
The Society for Research in Psychopathology instituted an award given each Fall to one deserving individual for lifetime contributions to the understanding of psychopathology. The first award was given in 1987 to Dr. Joseph Zubin. In 1990, the organization’s annual award was officially named the Joseph Zubin Award. Listed below are the the most recent winners of the award.
