In memory of Hamish Canham’s exceptional writing ability, the Applied Prize aims to encourage new writers. The subject could be on the themes of infant observation, work discussion, young child observation OR a paper on psychoanalytic thinking. This could include an approach to something in the arts or a social or political issue.

Our judging panel includes someone from the wider professional community, a representative of the Tavistock Child Psychotherapy discipline, and one course lead.

Staff, alumni, and current students of M7, M9, M16, M33 & M34 are invited to the prizegiving and presentation of an outstanding non-clinical essay involving the application of psychoanalytic ideas to observation.
