Claire Ciliotta, PhD, has been a practicing psychotherapist since she was 37, and she is now 75. Prior to that, she worked in a bank (very, very briefly!), worked for Pan American Airlines, Louise Wise Teen-age Unwed Mother residence, Sheltering Arms Children’s Service Group Homes, and ran a Child Life Program at Bellevue Hospital Inpatient Pediatrics. "All of which," she says, "made me a much more effective therapist."
She holds an MA in Learning Disabilities and Reading, and she later pursued a Ph.D in Applied Psychology from NYU.
In this live event from December 2020, we talked about:
