Sue Doherty M.A. graduated from Sonoma State University’s Department of Anthropology with a degree in Cultural Resources Management (CRM). Sue’s research and oral histories have been exhibited in museums and book anthologies. Sue also has a background in child development and holistic health (certified in acupuncture, nutrition, and as a mindfulness teacher K.-5). For the last several years, her anthropological fieldwork has been doing applied behavioral analysis work and mindfulness based behavioral intervention with Early Start infants and toddlers, and with Easter Seals assisting special needs students K-12. Sue is the author of Dancing With Your Baby–for Bonding and Better Health for Both of You. Her research explores the interface of intangible cultural heritage, including song, music, dance, skills, crafts and the like, and basic behavioral needs, and how they help individuals, communities, and cultures survive and thrive. Sue is presently a student in the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program–a 2-year training certified through UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center.
