Susan E. Antelis: Professional Information
Art is food for the soul~ That is why I have chosen to use art as a therapeutic tool with both patients and students. It goes beyond words to the sacred places within us all. I think it saved my life as a child and teenager growing up. In addition, I value education and training. Here is an adapted excerpt from my bio as originally seen on the CW Post LIU website, where I taught in the Art Therapy Program as an Adjunct Professor for 6 years; I now teach Art Therapy at Hofstra University:
