This is a compilation video of Drama Therapist and professor Renée Emunah discussing the Drama Therapy program at CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies) and answering some FAQs about the program.
I’m proud of this piece because exploring the intersection between mental health and filmmaking is something I want to continue deepening in my work — as well I have personally been touched by Drama Therapy in my own life and acting career, and I feel more people should better understand what this work centers around. Also shout-out to my friend Kelso Harper for helping co-produce and DP this piece as well.
Enjoy! And stay tuned for more collaborations with CIIS in the near future.
