American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California Celebrates Dr. Marc Lubin

American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California Celebrates Dr. Marc Lubin
 
The American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California recently held a luncheon in honor of Dr. Marc Lubin. Lubin, who had dedicated 40 years of service to the university, retired from his full-time position last year.

Marc Lubin, PhD is a Professor and Clinical Psychology faculty member at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California (ASPP, Southern California).
Dr. Lubin received his PhD from the Committee on Human Development in Clinical Psychology at the University of Chicago in 1968. He went on to complete his initial postdoctoral fellowship in Chicago at Michael Reese Hospital in 1969, and then completed an advanced postdoctoral fellowship and then a staff member position at the Austen Riggs Center in Massachusetts.

During that time he was able to attend small seminars with Erik Erikson and other senior psychoanalysts as part of his training and ongoing staff role. He then returned to Chicago in 1973 to become a teacher-psychologist at the Orthogenic School at the University of Chicago and worked with severely disturbed children as a classroom teacher.

At that time, his focus was on both teaching emotionally disturbed children and observing the positive impact of milieu therapy on the patients at the School, which had been founded by Bruno Bettelheim. Shortly before leaving the Orthogenic School in 1977, he began teaching at the first pre-Argosy University program that began in 1976, the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, as well as privately consulting to teachers and therapists. He also started and has maintained a private clinical practice since 1978. After serving as Faculty Chair, Dean of Faculty, and Campus Dean at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Chicago in his 25 years at that institution, he joined the new ASPP, Southern California initially as Dean of Psychology and Psy.D. Program Chair in 2002. He resigned from his administrative posts in 2006 to become a full time core faculty member.

Over his over 40 years of clinical practice and teaching, Dr. Lubin has maintained a strong interest in both psychotherapy and in the teaching of psychotherapy to doctoral students.
