"Culinary Art Therapy"

Mon, Oct 29, 2018
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Tichenor Hall 215

Julie Ohana presents a talk on "Culinary Art Therapy", a mental health and well-being intervention program aimed particularly at women and teens. Cooking has been a passion of Julie's since childhood. It started while baking family recipes with her grandmother, working as a prep cook while in high school and as the kitchen manager at her summer camp. As she developed a passion for cooking, Julie discovered a second love- helping people through therapy. Julie received her B.A in Counseling from SUNY Empire State College in 2001, and earned her M.S.W from Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler School of Social Work in New York City in 2004. Julie has worked with a wide-ranging population. She has worked in the fields of inpatient substance abuse treatment, as well as outpatient mental health treatment. Julie has many years of experience working with adolescents and their parents. Currently, Julie lives in West Bloomfield, Michigan with her husband (who also happens to be an outstanding cook) and two children. In addition to her full time job, Julie enjoys helping others find meaning and fun in their own kitchen.

Free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by Women's Studies, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work. For more information, contact Rosetta Caponetto at
