Dr Brian Hall receives the Early Career Award for Outstanding Contribution to Professional Clinical Psychology

Dr Brian Hall from the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Macau (UM), recently received the Theodore Blau Early Career Award for Outstanding Contribution to Professional Clinical Psychology, from the American Psychological Association (APA). The award is given by the APA’s Society of Clinical Psychology, with an aim to honour clinical psychologists for their professional accomplishments within the first ten years of receiving their PhD degrees. The award also aims to reward psychologists for their contributions to education, research, service, and clinical practice. Founded in 1998, the award has been given to directors of research centres and clinical researchers at top universities, including Yale University and the University of California at Los Angeles. Dr Hall will receive the award at the award presentation ceremony to be held this August in Denver, Colorado, the United States. Dr Hall has published nearly 30 peer-reviewed articles in leading SSCI journals since joining UM in January 2014. As an epidemiologist and a professional in the field of global public health, Dr Hall is currently involved in a collaborative multidisciplinary research project aimed to improve people’s health in the Greater China region, with an emphasis on the population in Macao, and the migrant communities across the Pearl River Delta region. Dr Hall is a co-editor of an upcoming special issue of the European Journal of Psychotraumatology on global mental health and migration. He recently gave a talk on migration and mental health during the first TEDx event at UM.
