Congratulations to Forensicare’s Professor James Ogloff AM, recipient of the AP-LS Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychology and Law
Last week, Forensicare’s Professor James Ogloff AM was presented with the Award for Distinguished Contribution to Psychology and Law at the American Psychology-Law Society (ASP-LS) annual congress in Memphis, Tennessee. This award honours a person who has made distinguished theoretical, empirical, and/or applied contributions to the field of psychology and law. The award is rarely given as it is reserved for individuals whose contributions are considered so unusual as to merit special commendation. Jim’s nomination was supported by leaders in the field of psychology and law. His substantial scholarly contributions and impact on service delivery and practice in several countries was noted. The award was presented by Eve Brank, PhD, associate professor of psychology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
Professor Ogloff heads the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science (CFBS), Australasia’s leading centre for excellence in the areas of forensic mental health and forensic behavioural science research, teaching and practice development. He is also a member of Forensicare’s executive team as Director of Psychological Services.
