Since early March, until June, Jennie ran ongoing weekly expressive arts therapy groups. Teachers, clinicians as well as parents and furloughed workers from 6 countries participated in these weekly sessions. Lisa Hughes, a co-anchor on CBS News interviewed Jennie and her colleague Ara Parker (They are both faculty at Lesley University). The news item showcased artwork, and a recording of different aspects of the group which was done over the Zoom platform. Enjoy.
