The Saybrook Alumni Association and Saybrook University are proud to announce that Psychology Alumnus Dr. Sil Machado was recently appointed to the Core Faculty at the Sanville Institute for Clinical Social Work and Psychotherapy in Berkeley, CA.
Established in 1974, the Sanville Institute offers a PhD in clinical social work and a two-year certificate program in psychodynamic psychotherapy to masters-level licensed and pre-licensed clinicians. The Institute promotes clinical scholarship that integrates theory and practice. Largely focusing on contemporary psychodynamic theory and practice, the program is a dispersed model of learning for working professionals who seek the challenge of doctoral studies within a program that allows for individualized interests and perspectives.
Dr. Machado received his Ph.D. from Saybrook in 2011. His dissertation titled, Gay Men And The Poetics Of Facing Negative Parental Reactions To The Disclosure Of Gay Identity, was chaired by Dr. Willson Williams.
