CNHP Hosts International Fulbright Scholars
The Hahnemann Creative Arts in Therapy Program in the College of Nursing and Health Professions is hosting two international Fulbright scholars, Ivania Quesada-Chaverri from Costa Rica and Dr. Diana Fan from Taiwan.
Quesada-Chaverri, a Dance Therapy Fulbright Scholar studying for her master’s degree under the advisement of dance/movement therapy education director Ellen Schelly-Hill, will graduate from CNHP in 2008. Quesada-Chaverri has a background in dance and psychology. She hopes her experience at Drexel will permit her to return to Costa Rica and develop new treatments using dance therapy. “Dance therapy is not yet a developed discipline in Costa Rica,” she says. “Being able to study it at Drexel will permit me to make dance therapy grow as a possible treatment and to prepare programs that will improve the quality of life for many people.”
Fan is an Art Therapy Fulbright Scholar researching domestic violence as portrayed in the artwork by women victims of domestic abuse. Fan, who is working under the advisement of Dr. Nancy Gerber, director of art therapy education, is comparing the stories and art of Taiwanese domestic violence victims to those from the U.S. She is hoping to determine if there are similarities between the family and psychological makeup of the women from these cultures.
