alice k. ladas research award submissions

USABP Awards statement

The Field of Body Psychotherapy continues to grow. Discovering new ways to bring healing and transformation to clients and society.

Our Award events honor the many positive contributing milestones in our history. And from time to time it is in special order that we take time to honor a few individuals in particular.

We are pleased each year to present Award Recipients to honor them and all that they represent in our industry. Join us at our next Award Ceremony.


The Alice Ladas Research Award is awarded at every conference to the best contribution in somatic psychology research. Submissions are adjudicated through a blind, peer-reviewed process by our awards sub-committee.

Two awards are distributed; one at the clinical membership level ($500) and one student award ($100).

The criteria for submissions are found here:
