"One of my most life changing experiences! The Drama Therapy program at CIIS gave me the personal and clinical resources I needed to become a skilled therapist, while remaining in touch with my artist self."
-Dorothy Lemoult, Drama Therapy Alumna, MA (2011)

"Cohort members are engaged in the community as agents of change and work to make transparent the political dimensions of psychology toward rethinking mental health treatment and intervention."
-Aimee Armata, Community Mental Health Alumna, MA (20__)

"Movement/dance is my passion, and I've always been inclined toward helping, listening, and processing. Finding a career path that brings these things together seemed perfect for me. Bridging my past experience working in wilderness therapy with adolescents, and my personal practice studying the 5 Rhythms movement meditation, has organically continued at CIIS."
-Cherie Felzer, Somatic Psychology Alumna, MA (20__)
