The ANZJFT Journal Award was established in 1994, and is presented at the Annual AAFT conference to an individual or group who has made a distinguished contribution to Family Therapy in Australia. An honour roll of all previous recipients is on the ANZJFT website.

The 2018 recipient was Jenny Brown, for her long-standing commitment to family therapy practice, publication and training, with a particular zeal for making Bowen Family Systems theory accessible and useful across a multiplicity of therapeutic domains.

– Development of key services
