New Art Therapy Advisor: Molly O’Neill Haaga, PhD, ATR, LPC

Please join me in welcoming Professor Molly Haaga who has been hired to provide additional part time support to our department.  She returns to campus after taking a semester off at home with her growing family, ready to add a few additional responsibilities to her teaching load.  No stranger to Ursuline, Molly is a 2008 graduate of our Counseling and Art Therapy program.  Before this, she was an art therapy major as an undergraduate at Lesley University, graduating in 2004.  Her PhD dissertation studied the “Effects of Art Therapy Intervention on Chronic Pain and Psychosocial Comorbidities.”  In addition to her academic work, Molly has over 15 years of work experience in the field, providing art therapy services to individuals in a wide range of populations.   She has been teaching for our undergraduate program since Fall of 2015, while also teaching in the undergraduate and doctoral programs at Lesley University.  We are truly blessed to have Dr. Haaga’s increased presence with us here on campus!  You’ll find her office right next to mine on the 2nd floor of Parker Hannifin.  Welcome, Molly!!!

Volunteer Opportunity: Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders:  Girl Scouts on campus!

This semester we are excited to start a new collaboration with the Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio.  On the morning of April 21st, several brownie and junior girl scout troops will convene in Dauby and Parker-Hannifin for some fun, hands-on workshops that will teach STEM concepts through a few engaging activities.  We are excited to participate in this workshop day, offering the girls a session in natural plant-based fabric dying.  The girls will dye scarves while learning about chromatography and earning a “Science of Beauty” patch while here.  If you are interested in helping facilitate this workshop (9-noon), please let me know.  We’ll need several hands on deck to assist!
