SEATTLE, March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Each year The Sigourney Trust honors up to four individuals, groups or organizations with an independent prize, The Sigourney Award.

“Our founder Mary Sigourney sought to reward efforts that were applied, as well as clinical or scholarly. She wanted to recognize work that crossed all human and geographical boundaries as well as professional categories to emphasize how psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic thought intersects with academic, humanitarian, and arts-focused fields, and we encourage those whose work meets these criteria to apply,” says Robin A. Deutsch, PhD, Analyst Trustee for The Sigourney Trust which was founded in 1989.
