Psyche on Campus, the blog about teaching and learning psychoanalysis in colleges and universities that Penn Professor Max Cavitch initiated and curates, has won the 2022 Excellence in Journalism Prize from the American Psychoanalytic Association.
The award citation reads in part:
“Promoting psychoanalytic ideas to an interdisciplinary, intergenerational, global public is a priority for APsaA. ‘Psyche on Campus’ furthers such a mission brilliantly, connecting psychoanalysis to conversations and issues of our time and highlighting psychosocial insights in an accessible form that invites participation and readership, including from undergraduates studying a diverse array of subjects.”
Psyche on Campus is an outgrowth of the Penn-PCOP collaboration and instituted by Max with the Penn undergraduate minor in psychoanalytic studies in mind. It now has thousands of readers around the world.
