Award for Distinguished Early Career Contributions to Psychology in the Public Interest: Keith Humphreys
American Psychologist, v64 n8 p710-723 Nov 2009
Keith Humphreys, recipient of the Award for Distinguished Early Career Contributions to Psychology in the Public Interest, is cited for creatively combining a scientist's commitment to rigor, a clinician's emphasis on high-quality mental health care, and a policy analyst's understanding of how to address and resolve social problems. His work as a program evaluator and policy analyst has informed important legislation that has enhanced access to and quality of mental health services for U.S. veterans within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Moreover, he has been a prime mover in shaping the Iraqi Ministry of Health's effort to create a modern and equitable system of mental health care for the Iraqi community. A biography and selected bibliography of Humphreys' works are provided. In addition, Humphreys' paper, entitled "Responding to the psychological impact of war on the Iraqi people and U.S. veterans: Mixing icing, praying for cake," a version of which Hymphreys delivered at the American Psychological Association's annual convention, is presented. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
