By virtue of Dr. Art Nezu’s contributions in promoting diversity in professional psychology, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) has named an annual dissertation award in his honor—the “Arthur M. Nezu, PhD, ABPP Dissertation Diversity Award.” According to ABPP, “this prestigious award recognizes an individual whose dissertation makes an outstanding contribution to the field of diversity reflecting an ABPP specialty. The recipient of the award will receive $1,000 cash prize and be honored at the ABPP Convocation at the annual APA Annual Convention. The first award will be presented August 2014.” ABPP is the national organization that confers, via peer evaluation, board certification in 15 specialties in professional psychology. Dr. Nezu is board certified in three specialties: cognitive and behavioral psychology, clinical psychology, and clinical health psychology.
