We're All About the Finish - CityU students finish at twice the national rate

City University of Seattle is pleased to congratulate Margot Sangster, Maureen Chute, Shelly Bonnah and June Wong, four recent graduates of our master of arts in counselling psychology program in Vancouver, British Columbia. Each of these alumni had their theses published by VDM-Verlag Publishers as books in 2008. In their writings, the graduates provide valuable insight on overcoming the trauma of witnessing violence as a child, understanding the complex relationships between Chinese mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law, the wounds and re-wounding that occurs in children in foster care as a result of systemic issues, and resiliency in parental relationship as a factor when children face life-threatening illness. We are proud of the level of scholarship that the graduates have achieved and grateful for the additional recognition their accomplishments have brought to our prestigious program.
