We are delighted to announce that Dr. Irv Yalom, author of the seminal text, Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy (2005), now in its fifth edition, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from Division 49 at the 2018 APA National Convention in San Francisco.  His writing on group also includes other world-renowned titles such Inpatient Group Therapy (1983) and a work of fiction, The Schopenhauer Cure (2006). Dr. Yalom has also produced several videos on group psychotherapy that have served as teaching aids worldwide for decades. His writing, videos, theorizing and research have had a profound impact on group therapy around the world, and this award recognizes both the depth and breadth of his contributions to group.

After receiving this award, Dr. Yalom will then give a live interview, answering questions about his lifetime in group. We are asking for your contributions to this!  Please go to our Facebook page, twitter feed and email address and submit questions you want Dr. Yalom to answer.  We will then select some of the questions to ask him from these contributions.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco and hope you can make it to this award ceremony and interview.
