The School of Education and Counseling Psychology Receives Leadership Gift from Sobrato-Brisson Family
We are pleased to announce that ECP alumna Sheri Sobrato Brisson MA ’94, and Eric Brisson have made a generous gift to the School of Education and Counseling Psychology for the establishment of the largest endowed chair in the history of Santa Clara University. In addition to the creation of the endowed chair in child and adolescent mental health, the gift provides funding to support research, a new specialization in child and adolescent mental health, community outreach, and thought leadership programming related to this critical area. To learn more about the gift, please read the press release.
“I’ve seen the adverse life circumstances young people face, and their need to make decisions about what they want out of life and how they’re going to get there . . . My hope is that this gift produces more therapists trained in child and adolescent mental health. There is a significant shortage of therapists, particularly for underserved populations. I hope our gift moves the needle in thought leadership in the field, and draws people to Santa Clara for training who can go on to affect the lives of many young people in their own communities.” -Sheri Sobrato Brisson
Please visit the Department of Counseling Psychology for information on other programs and emphasis offered.
