We’re thrilled to announce the hiring of our Executive Director! Erica Horn has accepted the position and will start April 23. Erica brings tremendous knowledge and energy to our program. For the past 10 years she has been at HERO House–a Clubhouse in Bellevue, WA which she launched and built, in collaboration with a strong board and community. Prior to that she was at Evergreen Clubhouse for five years, and has worked for 11 years on the Clubhouse International faculty, accrediting Clubhouse programs across the globe.
Erica is highly regarded throughout the Clubhouse International community, having achieved accreditation for Hero House in record time, and for achieving financial sustainability even as other Clubhouses struggled during the financial downturn.

THE SANVILLE INSTITUTE
The Sanville Institute for Clinical Social Work and Psychotherapy (formerly California Institute for Clinical Social Work) has offered a PhD in clinical social work to master’s level clinicians in Northern and Southern California since 1974. The program is flexible and individualized to accommodate the needs of working professionals.
To augment its unique and successful self-paced doctoral program, the Institute is pleased to introduce a pilot project based on the cohort educational model.
Cross-Cultural Cohort PhD Program
Scheduled to start in September 2013 In Southern California
The cohort is a small group educational format where students and faculty stay together throughout the entire program in order to provide support, motivation, and encouragement. The focus of learning is upon the multi-cross-cultural aspects, both explicit and implicit, of the relationship between the psychotherapist and client or teacher and student; and how to use psychoanalytic and other current theory in a way that is relevant to multi-cross-cultural clinical practice. In this intensive and supportive environment, students may expect to complete the doctoral program in 3-4 years.
Email the Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on a list to receive more information about this program or contact Dr. Alexis Selwood, 323.469.8462, email@example.com
The Sanville Community Alliance sponsors socializing, networking, and continuing education programs in collaboration with the Smith College School for Social Work Los Angeles Alumni Group and Pacific Oaks Mar- riage and Family Therapy Programs (traditional, African-American and Latina/Latino Family Studies Speciali- zations).
On November 10, 2012 SCA sponsored a gathering at the home of Monica Blauner, LCSW, Alumnae Area Coordinator of Smith College School of Social Work. In addition to Monica, the organizers were Lynn Rosenfield, LCSW, Alex Kivowitz, PhD, and Alexis Selwood, PhD of The Sanville Institute, and Connie Destitio, LCSW, program director of the Pacific Oaks Latina/Latino and African- American Family Studies Programs.
The highlight of the gathering was a presentation by Gloria de la Cruz- Quiroz, LCSW, entitled: The Impact of Multigenerational Family History: Implications for Practice. Gloria is the program director of the Los Angeles Child Development Center’s school-based mental health program at Camino Nuevo Charter Academy in Los Angeles. The presentation was well- received and sparked an invigorating and enlightening discussion.It was a wonderful opportunity to socialize and network with a diverse group of students and therapists from different backgrounds: Euro- Americans, African-American, Latina/o-Americans, and Asian- Americans. The group included students, faculty, and alumni from The Sanville Institute, Smith College School of Social Work, and Pacific Oaks College.
“Gloria made her presentation stimulating and relevant, evidenced by the level of group participation. I took away a number specific questions to add to my history-taking.”Here are some comments from participants:
“I’m so glad to have had this opportunity. It was well worth the time. I really was moved by the experience and I am glad to see such a diverse group of professionals so interested in social change.”
“The appropriate sharing of personal experience during the discussion greatly deepened my understanding and integration of the profound impact that family history and cultural difference can have on everyday life, even if the individual is unaware or needs to keep the awareness out of consciousness in order to go on.”
The Sanville Community Alliance is the Los Angeles service arm of The Sanville Institute of Clinical Social Work and Psychotherapy. It provides both continuing education and psychotherapy.
