National Awards Scheme

AACBT offers two annual awards to recognise achievements in the field of cognitive and behaviour therapy. These are awarded at the National Conference and the recipients are invited to address the conference being held during the year of their award. These awards are:

THE TRACY GOODALL EARLY CAREER AWARD  

This award is named in memory of Tracy Goodall who was tragically killed on Friday March 5, 1993. Tracy was a well-known member of the AACBT (then the ABMA) and was Queensland State president during 1990 and 1991. She was also a very dear friend and colleague of many AACBT members and members of the World Congress Organising Committee.

The aim of the award is to provide encouragement for recent graduate researchers and clinicians in cognitive-behaviour research and therapy. The award is to recognise research or clinical innovation that has made an outstanding contribution to this field in Australia.

No award will be made if the quality of applicants is deemed inadequate by the selection committee.

To qualify for consideration:

  • You must have completed your first postgraduate qualification, either Masters or PhD within the past 5 years While applicants are still eligible for consideration on the basis of having an undergraduate qualification alone, it is anticipated that successful applicants will have higher degrees.
  • There is no upper age limit stipulated.
  • You must be a full financial member of the AACBT at the time of application.
  • You must not be a current member of the AACBT Awards Selection Committee.
  • You can apply as many times as you wish as long as the criteria for application are met.

 The award and related responsibilities:

  • The award is composed of $2,000, which is to be used for conference travel to the National Conference in the year of the award.
  • It is a condition of the award that a ''Tracy Goodall Early Career Award Address·∙' is presented at the AACBT Ltd. National Conference in the year of the award. As no AACBT Ltd. National Conference is being held in 2015, the award winner is required to present their address at the AACBT Ltd General Meeting and Awards Night. This will be held in Melbourne on Wednesday the 21st of October, 2015 from 6.30-­‐9pm. Location TBA.
  • All travel, meals, accommodation, travel, etc costs are the responsibility of the award winner.

It is expected that:

  • Remaining funds, not spent on attending the AACBT Ltd AGM/Awards Night will be used to advance the practice of CBT related activities and can be used for other conference travel, research or clinical expenses.
