Therapists & Researchers
In its commitment to clinical care and training, ADAA's Clinician Trainee Award acknowledges those who have excelled in their performance in an internship or clinical training setting.
New in 2012, this award provides up to three clinician trainees the opportunity to attend the annual conference, meet with a senior clinician mentor, and become involved with the organization.
Congratulations to the winners:
Awards are given to help early career professionals with a research interest in anxiety disorders and depression such as basic and clinical neurobiology and psychopharmacology, clinical psychology, genetics, neuroimaging, epidemiology, and public health, as well as other areas.
The awards also familiarize and engage aspiring professionals with the membership and work of the association.

Authors of a new study have found that social anxiety disorder is not just medicalized shyness. Of those youth with the disorder, only a fraction consider themselves shy, and they are not more likely to be getting treatment compared to their peers, questioning the perception that they are receiving unnecessary medications. See Triumph Over Shyness: Conquering Social Anxiety Disorder.
People often jokingly point to odd habits or tidiness as signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. But the truth is OCD is a very real disorder that affects more than 2 million Americans, and there is a big difference between maintaining a morning routine or keeping a clean home and living with the disorder.
ADAA’s reasonable conference fee is competitively priced in comparison to national professional organizations of comparable scope and size.
See how ADAA’s registration discounts and members-only perks quickly add up to significant savings for you.

ADAA will sponsor up to four competitive grants to special interest groups (SIGs) to support innovative projects that advance advocacy, dissemination, education, professional development, research, and training.
ADAA special interest groups provide opportunities for members to create smaller communities and network with others with similar interests, and enrich the broader ADAA community. Only ADAA members can belong and participate in the activities of SIGs.
Goal of Grant
Small grants foster innovative contributions to the organization.
