Jean Pettifor, PhD, wins Wilhelm Wundt-William James Award

The American Psychological Foundation is pleased to announce Jean Pettifor, PhD, of Wayne State University, as the recipient of the 2013 Wilhelm Wundt-William James Award for Exceptional Contributions to Trans-Atlantic Psychology. 

Over the past 60 years and counting, Jean Pettifor has made major contributions to the development of professional psychology. She worked tirelessly through psychology organizations, teaching and supervision, publications, and community consultations to apply ethical thinking to the practical realities of the workplace. She joined European psychologists in the search for universal ethical principles and understanding of cultural differences. She shared in the development of the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists (2008). She has been president of the Psychologists Association of Alberta, the College of Alberta Psychologists and the Canadian Psychological Association. 

The Wundt-William James Award is given in conjunction with the European Federation of Psychology Associations (EFPA), and made possible through a gift to APF from Raymond Fowler, PhD. This award recognizes psychologists from Europe and/or North America who have made significant contributions to trans-Atlantic research collaboration. 

The award is presented at the biennial meeting of the congress of the European Federation of Psychology Associations (EFPA).
