Dr. Mazure Receives Psychology Award

September 14, 2016

WHRY Director Carolyn M. Mazure, Ph.D., received the Sidney J. Blatt Award at a June ceremony for graduates of Yale School of Medicine’s Fellowship in Clinical and Community Psychology.

This is the highest honor bestowed by the Psychology Section for excellence in clinical care, teaching, and research, named in memory of the former Chief of Psychology within the Department of Psychiatry.

For over 50 years, Dr. Blatt maintained a vibrant psychotherapy practice, trained hundreds of psychologists and physicians, and pursued empirical research on psychodynamic theories and interventions.

In a keynote address, Dr. Mazure spoke of how she first met Dr. Blatt when interviewing for the fellowship and how she was eager to learn from him because of his foresight in recognizing and conceptualizing gender differences in depression and his flexibility in integrating diverse approaches to understanding and treating the disorder.

“And just as Dr. Blatt never stopped learning and attempting integration of ideas, and just as many of us here have followed that tradition, I encourage you to do the same,” she said.
