Professor Brin Grenyer has won the APS College of Clinical Psychologist’s Ian M Campbell Memorial Award.

The Prize seeks to promote and encourage excellence in clinical psychology and to reward and encourage psychologists as ‘scientist-practitioners’, for their contribution in research, therapy and/or social applicability. The Prize is awarded annually to an APS member who has made an outstanding contribution to the scientific or professional status of clinical psychology in Australia.

The College noted its respect for Professor Grenyer’s deep and thorough knowledge of and passion for the profession and Professor Grenyer will sit on various APS College think tanks and discussion forums in 2021.

Professor Grenyer has been instrumental in the development of Project Air, a personality disorders strategy which supports compassionate, evidence-based treatment and recovery for people with personality disorders and their families and carers.

Project Air is a partnership between the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) at UOW and the NSW Ministry for Health and Local NSW Health Districts. It seeks to engage the community, families, carers, consumers and health and drug and alcohol services and agencies, to support better treatments for personality disorders.

Founded in 2001, the strategy fosters University-health partnerships locally, nationally and internationally.
