Diana Feldman is a board certified drama therapist and a licensed creative arts therapist. She founded ENACT in 1987 to address the social and emotional needs of underserved students in public schools. A champion of change for using the creative arts therapies for personal and social transformation, she regularly leads workshops at national conferences on education, creative arts therapies and mental health. She is currently completing a book about her experiences working with children as far reaching as India. In addition her chapter from the Text Book “Current Approaches to Drama Therapy” is now used as required reading material in several Universities that teach drama therapy. To keep her own creative spark alive, Diana can be found performing her original songs in and around New York.
