We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
Jacqueline Fowler, interim director of the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment, was re-elected to the executive council for the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama in June 2013.
The ASGPP, founded in 1942, is the pioneer membership organization in group psychotherapy and is a resource for ongoing developments in group psychotherapy, psychodrama and sociometry.
Fowler is co-chair of the ASGPP annual conference, to be held in Oakland, Calif., in April 2014. The conference's educational program will offer more than 100 workshops including applications in drama therapy, bodywork, addiction, spirituality, gender and LGBT concerns, conflict resolution and education.
She recently returned from Iseo, Italy, where she attended the annual International Sociodrama Conference in early September.
Jacqueline Fowler has been training in psychodrama and sociometry for 20+ years. She has taught at Marylhurst University since 1996, where she focuses on human relations, self and identity, experiential and transformative learning, and reflective inquiry.
