The Society for Prevention Research is pleased to present the ECPN John B. Reid Early Career Award to Dr. Jeffrey Temple. As a young researcher, Dr. Temple has been very active and productive, publishing in many competitive journals. While the quantity of his publications is excellent, the quality and impact of his publications are also noteworthy. Through his research, Dr. Temple has increased our understanding of the etiology and course of interpersonal violence. As demonstrated by his publication record, Dr. Temple has been on the forefront of understanding the predictors of interpersonal violence.

Dr. Temple has a strong record of collaboration, and he has a very impressive trajectory of successfully obtaining extramural funding, especially for a young researcher. In particular, his funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Justice to further understand the determinants of interpersonal violence should greatly contribute to the field and will result in important publications.

Constantly striving to become a better researcher, Dr. Temple has been dedicated to learning about intervention development and research methodologies to evaluate and test interventions. He has demonstrated his commitment to the field by learning about Intervention Mapping, and collaborating with the University of Texas Prevention Research Center on a dating violence prevention project. As an esteemed colleague, and excellent researcher, and a productive scholar, Jeffrey Temple is highly worthy of the John B. Reid Early Career Award.
