INS Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients
When you talk with him he is fully present, focused, and engaged despite the swirl of issues he manages as Executive Director. He is a master of organizational detail, which makes for some of the longest emails any of us have ever seen! As a result, though, he leaves a legacy of clearer and more transparent society procedures, which will be the critical foundation for the society’s future growth. Gordon has always taken pride in representing INS in a positive way.
He worked as a clinical psychologist in the Thomayer Hospital in Prague and in The Military Rehabilitation Facility Slapy. Before the fall of the communist regime, he organized seminars and lectures for many Czech psychologists in experimental and clinical neuropsychology. In his clinical practice, he was influenced by Luria and he is one of the main exponents of Luria´s work in the Czech Republic.
No individual has ever been honored — or even nominated — to receive the INS Lifetime Achievement in Service Award, but it is difficult to imagine anyone in the history of the Society who is more deserving than Dr. Robert A. Bornstein.
