Psychology Professor Dr. Edward Shafranske Receives Award
Dr. Edward Shafranske, professor of psychology and Psy.D. program director at GSEP, received the California Psychological Association’s (CPA) 2007 Distinguished Contribution to Psychology as a Profession award at its annual convention. The award recognizes pioneering efforts, sustained and exemplary service, and leadership in the field for psychologists who have made outstanding contributions to the profession. On receiving the award, Shafranske said, “It is an honor to be recognized by my peers, and I am humbled to receive this award.” In addition, Shafranske was delighted to be selected as one of 12 scholars invited to participate in a one-week symposium on religion and psychoanalysis hosted by the University of Amsterdam. An international group of religious studies professors, anthropologists, philosophers, and psychoanalysts convened at the university to critically examine post-Freudian contributions to the psychology of religion.
