My Diem Nguyen, PsyD Student, Named 2014 Scholar by APA

The Multicultural Concerns Committee (MCC) of the American Psychological Association Division of Psychoanalysis named My Diem Nguyen a winner of the 2014 Scholars Program. Selection of this year's 22 scholars was based on:

  • knowledge of psychoanalytic ideas and multicultural literature;
  • ability to reflect on one's minority experience; and
  • capacity to make future scholarly and/or clinical contributions to psychoanalytic psychology by bringing in insights from the ethnic minority experience.

This year's winners represent a diverse cultural, ethnic, and sexual orientation backgrounds, as well as academic and clinical experiences.

In New York this April, all award winners will attend a reception, an MCC board meeting, and an evening reception co-sponsored by The Psychoanalytic Network.
