Greetings and Happy New Year from Beth and the Staff

By Beth Schecter, Interim Executive Director

 

I always love the New Year since it feels like we get a chance for a fresh start. Of course I continue to look at how SFCP is doing organizationally and reporting my findings to the board. I feel we are making progress on many things, including getting more organized with our processes and finances. Here are some of the things we are working on that I wanted you to know.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am very pleased to tell you that we have hired Beth Schecter, MPH, MBA to serve as our Interim Executive Director. Zach and I considered numerous well qualified candidates before deciding on Beth. Not only is she a highly skilled professional with a lot of experience, we believe that she will be a good fit and asset for our organization in this transition.

These include the East Bay Agency for Children, Hillel at Stanford, the Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration, Jewish Family and Children’s Services and the Edgewood Center for Children & Families.

Hal Sampson, PhD - An Appreciation

Hal Sampson, PhD - An Appreciation

by Suzanne Gassner, PhD

 

As you all may know, Hal Sampson, PhD, died on April 23, 2015. For many years Hal played an important role at the then named San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute and Society (SFPI). He was on the faculty, taught a course on Freud's dream book and became a Life Member. Along with Joe Weiss, MD, he co-led the Mt Zion Hospital Research Group, later named the San Francisco Research Group; the work of that group was co-sponsored by SFPI and Mt. Zion Hospital. The gifts Hal Sampson offered to all of us who were privileged to have a long term working relationship with him were many.
