Reflection from Graduating Student Mushkan DeFilippo

 

This collage represents my vision of the woman I have become through my time at Goddard, and, thanks to my life experiences over those years, how I see myself as a therapist.

I chose the image of The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, partially because I am Italian and also as a symbol of birth of my own feminine qualities. Her nudity is unapologetic. She wears a crown that symbolizes her being the queen of her life, and fully embracing her power and presence.

Dr. Wendy Phillips Talks about Expressive Arts Therapy Emphasis

Over the last five years at Goddard College, we have explored ways to integrate the arts into the Psychology and Counseling department. We have developed ways for students to include creative works as components of coursework, supported students as they incorporated art into their work with clients at internships and practica, and guided students as they produced creative theses and other culminating products.

Johnny's Jubilance

Graduating student Johnny Ridenour (BAS '14) chimes in about what brought him to Goddard:

"When I finally got it together to return to school after 20+ years off, I thought of Goddard. My Dad did the same thing when he looked for a way to fit graduate school into a busy family life in the late 1970s. He found Goddard’s low-residency program. He was thrilled to have folks like Raymond Carver as advisors.

Eureka! I cried. (Well, mumbled, really). And how affirming.
