Dr. Michael Civin

Though he has been a practicing clinical psychologist for nearly three full decades, Dr. Michael Civin knew even before then that an extensive education was a necessity to become the best he could be. Obviously, he still believes this because he has never stopped pursuing academic education, to go along with the learning he gets from extensive experience.

His education started more than a half century ago, when the future Dr. Michael Civin obtained his A.B. degree cum laude with honors from Harvard. A year later, he attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for a time, before going on to earn his first Masters of Arts degree in 1970 from the University of Oregon. He obviously wasn’t satisfied, since the future Michael A. Civin Ph.D earned a second Masters of Arts degree, this time in Clinical Psychology in 1986, from the Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies at Adelphi University. When he earned his medical degree from the same institution in 1988, he earned the right to call himself Michael A. Civin, Ph.D. in 1988 and in 1993, Adelphi awarded him a Postdoctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
