The Karl Jaspers Award Committee of the Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry (AAPP) is delighted to announce the 2019 winner of its annual competition. From among 45 submissions, Phoebe Friesen’s manuscript, titled “Expanding Outcome Measures in Schizophrenia Research: Does RDoC Pose a Threat?,” was selected as the best paper by a student, trainee, or early-career academic on a topic in the philosophy of psychiatry. Dr. Friesen received her Ph.D. in philosophy in 2018 from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Ethox Centre of the Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford. Her paper will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the AAPP in San Francisco, May 18-19, 2019, and will appear in a forthcoming issue of Philosophy, Psychiatry, & Psychology.
