Argosy University, Nashville Granted CACREP accreditation
Argosy University, Nashville is pleased to share the news that the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, has granted eight years accreditation to the Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and two years accreditation for the Doctor of Education in Counselor Education & Supervision program at Argosy University, Nashville. 

CACREP accreditation is recognition that the programs’ quality meets the standards set by the counseling profession and is among the highest commendations that an academic program can receive in the counseling field. As stated by CACREP, “Accreditation in the United States is a unique peer review system of quality assurance. For CACREP, this means that programs voluntarily submit a self-study that is reviewed against the CACREP Standards by counselors and counselor educators to ensure that students receive a quality educational experience.”

“We are proud to have our programs and faculty recognized for their work and diligence in guiding our students in the development of the attitudes, knowledge, and skills required for the ethical provision of quality professional counseling services in line with the rigorous standards of CACREP,” says Dr. Joffrey Suprina, associate professor and dean of the College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences at Argosy University.

As a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), CACREP grants accredited status to graduate-level programs in the professional counseling field. The CACREP scope of accreditation includes: addiction counseling; career counseling; clinical mental health counseling; marriage, couple and family counseling; school counseling, student affairs and college counseling; and counselor education and supervision.

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.

Alumni Success

Assistant Professor, Teaches and Coordinates Internships for Students in the Health Information Management Program

Sabine Simmons
2015, Doctor of Education, Organizational Leadership, Argosy University, Online Programs
Assistant Professor, Alabama State University

“The information I learned [in the program was] key to my current position and will [prepare] me to successfully navigate through the upper levels of education administration and organizational leadership.”

Sabine Simmons is an assistant professor at Alabama State University. She teaches a wide range of courses within the curriculum and participates in faculty development activities, student advisement, curriculum updates, student recruitment, and planning.  Sabine also gives interdisciplinary lectures for allied healthcare students—and utilizes Blackboard LMS to facilitate online and traditional instruction. She helps to secure affiliation agreements with accredited healthcare institutions for clinical placement and practicum experiences for students in the school’s Health Information Management program. 

Additionally, she meets with clinical instructors to gain insight on improving outcomes of the internship process and experience—while assessing the quality and success of the internship program. She started her career working as an instructor in health information management. “At that time, I had a Master’s [degree]. Once I realized that it was necessary to further my education in order to be promoted in the field of academia, I began [pursuing a] Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership because of the flexible and supportive environment at Argosy University, Online Programs,” she says.

Her professional accomplishments include being awarded the "Outstanding New Professional" award from the Alabama Association of Health Information Management (AAHIM) in 2011. She’s also been invited to co-author a text book on ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases) coding by Paradigm Publishing, which is set for release in December of 2017. Sabine is also a member of the Parent Teacher Association at E. D. Nixon Elementary School, serves as a faculty senate member at Alabama State University, and as the student relations committee chair on the AAHIM board. “I am also a volunteer mentor in the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).”

She recommends that current students absorb what they’re learning—“do not commit it to your short term memory [just] to pass a class. Integrate your learning into your life and future endeavors.” Sabine adds that in school, quantitative statistics class provided a real challenge to her. “Although I did fail the first time, I worked closely with my professor to overcome the challenge.” 

In 2015, Sabine earned a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from Argosy University, Online Programs. She chose to pursue the degree because of the school’s supportive environment—and she knew that she needed a Doctor level degree to advance in her occupation. “The admissions and financial aid representative made many processes go smoothly, and there was a ground campus nearby so that I could participate in graduation.”

She adds that learning online allowed her to conveniently earn the degree, while gaining “volumes of content related to leading an organization, including conflict management and change management. The information I learned was key to my current position and will [allow] me to successfully navigate through the levels of education administration.” With her degree, she’s now qualified to teach graduate courses as an adjunct at other Universities. 

In addition to the knowledge gained at Argosy University, Online Programs, Sabine says that her instructors made lasting impacts upon her. “My dissertation chair and first writing professor [really made a difference]. The professor of my first writing course taught me the skills I needed to write scholarly material. My dissertation chair help me to utilize this skill and guided me through one of the toughest processes I have ever encountered (the dissertation process).”
