New in 2014, the Career Development Leadership Program is an intensive mentoring and professional development opportunity for early career clinicians and researchers.
An interactive learning experience, the program challenges thinking and encourages creative discourse about anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and depression in a diverse, multidisciplinary community of professionals involved in practice and research. This highly participatory program features outstanding leaders in the field, who will initiate stimulating discussions that shape new ideas and ways of thinking about the future.
A critical part of the ADAA mission is to support research in the areas of anxiety, stress, and related disorders. Open to graduate students and early career professionals, the Career Development Travel Awards and the Donald F. Klein Early Career Investigator Award further that goal.
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.
This award is given to an early career investigator for the best original research paper on neurobiology, psychopharmacology, psychosocial treatments, or experimental psychopathology of anxiety disorders and depression.
