For another productive summer, the East Side Institute and Social Therapy Group welcomed a cosmopolitan class of summer interns, representing a variety of cultural backgrounds and coming from colleges in the Bronx, Massachusetts, Louisiana, the UK and Spain.
Over the course the six weeks, the hard-working grouping of becoming-psychologists and educators helped produce Institute classes and workshops, conducted research on play and creativity, transcribed clinical interviews, pitched-in on the Fred Newman archives project and otherwise immersed themselves in the social therapeutic, performance-based approach.
In the photo above, students observed a demonstration workshop for Operation Conversation: Cops and Kids. Led by Institute faculty and All Stars Project co-founder Dr. Lenora Fulani, the workshop brought together over 500 NYPD rookie police officers and community members.
Here’s the line-up of the Institute’s 2013 class of summer interns: Tahani Chaudhury, Wellesley College Matthew Gonzalez, Bronx Community College Lauren Grabowski, Teachers College, Columbia University Leigh Harwood, Tulane University Kelly James, University of Roehampton, London Richard Orta, Bronx Community College Marina Ros, Morelia University, Spain Yu-Wen Ru, New York University (NYU)
