Don Hanlon Johnson
Professor Johnson is a professor of Somatics at The California Institute of Integral Studies (http://www.ciis.edu/) in San Francisco. The longstanding focus of his work has been social transformation through the lens of healing practices, the nature of the human body, and the structures of human communication. In 1983 he founded the first university graduate degree program in body-oriented psychology and education. It has become a support center for teachers and practitioners in the various private training institutes, and a think-tank in the field. The graduates of this program are now working as therapists and educators throughout Bay Area and in other locales in the US, Australia, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, and Latin America. He is the author of 5 books, several journal articles, and editor of 4 collections. Information about all of this is available on his website (www.donhanlonjohnson.com).
