Institute’s interns head back to college after a hard-working summer….

Programs Coordinator Melissa Meyer organized a “farewell” evening-out at the Castillo Theatre for six interns who’ve been working with the Institute over recent months — producing events, conducting social media outreach, observing social therapy groups, attending study groups and performing presentations on some of what they’ve been learning about the social therapeutic approach. What a vivacious, inquisitive and hard working group!
