Artwork and Reflection

by MA in Psychology student Cherie Crowningshield of Port Kent, N.Y.

 

When I was eleven I was intrigued by the thought of travel.  The idea that someone could get on a plane and before long be immersed in a new culture, and environment always fascinated me. 

When I reached high school I met my best friend, Minako Matsui.  She was a foreign exchange student from Japan who chose to leave the stability of her home to learn in the United States.  We soon became great friends, for we were both so interested in each other’s lives.

Better Than A Chocolate Store

Last week while in New Orleans for our monthly Jungian training seminar, I found myself with a free day, but in a torrential rain storm. No chance of wandering and making photographs in the French Quarter this visit.

I remembered passing by what looked like an art supply store in the Fat City neighborhood near my hotel on my visit last month. (I am perpetually lost in New Orleans, and hoped I would be able to find my way back.) I did find it, with the help of a young woman who was a native New Oreleanian.

Creative Final Products in the Psychology and Counseling Program

 

The last work of the Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Goddard College is the “Final Product.”

This work represents a culmination and integration of coursework, and may take the form of a thesis or a Capstone Product. Each student makes his or her own decision about which of the two final product options will be undertaken.

Recently, students have begun to integrate creative and expressive work into these final products. Thesis students have created artwork that “stands alone” or is juxtaposed or integrated into theoretical writing.

Residency Blog Entry from Student Cricket Greer

 

In my undergraduate work at Goddard, we had a rich movement community.  At each residency, we did Authentic Movement work with a professor who uses it in her private practice.  I have loved the group work that I have done with Authentic Movement (AM) and have engaged in several groups over the years.  I am presently not involved in expressive arts beyond my music job, so I wanted to revisit this work and bring this rich modality into the community here in the context of a workshop.

Residency Blog Installment from student Svea Boyda-Vikander

It's 9:48 pm and I'm at the Goddard College Psychology & Counseling program residency in Plainfield, Vermont. My sister and I are staying in the family dorm so my bulldozer of a baby boy can sleep right beside me and she can look after him during the days. He's 18 months old and passed out with just a few lullabies at 9pm. Whenever I get too excited with my typing he sighs and stirs. So I'll keep this quick.
