Albert C. Cain Research Award in Child Psychopathology


The Albert C. Cain Research Award in Child Psychopathology honors exceptional psychology graduate students who are studying child psychopathology, developmental psychopathology or children's loss experiences (e.g., parental death, divorce, desertion). For more than 20 years, Professor Cain has been known for his groundbreaking studies of children who experienced parental or sibling losses, including the impact of parental suicide upon children. The award amount is $500 to be used for research expenses.


The annual award is to be given to the student whose research best exemplifies highly significant and clinically relevant research in these domains, providing support for expenses related to carrying out a specific proposed study. Graduate students at any level in the clinical and developmental psychology programs are eligible to apply.
