Elizabeth Allen is a 2020 graduate from Temple University, with a BA in art therapy from the Tyler School of Art in Architecture, where she completed her research. She is a current first-year graduate student in Drexel University’s MA in Art Therapy and Counseling program. At Temple, she completed undergraduate fieldwork at Magee Rehabilitation Outpatient in Philadelphia, in addition to active involvement in student organizations and community arts practices. She hopes to work with children in a medical setting as a future art therapist and counselor.
Jamie Cannon is a recent graduate from Holy Family University with plans to continue into their graduate program. As a part of Holy Family’s Honors program, they were required to complete and present an independent research project of their choosing. Their project focused on the viability of art therapy as a treatment method for people charged with sexually based offences. Their future plans include getting my doctorate and focusing on research related to the corrections system and how to best help those who are incarcerated from reoffending upon release.
