Steven Kassel ’81

Steven Kassel ’81 says, “Though I haven’t worked in the film industry for very many years, my creativity (nurtured by ‘the CalArts Educational Experience’) has landed me in the role of creative pioneer in my field: Biofeedback Therapist. After becoming certified in biofeedback in 1985, and then as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 1992, I merged Biofeedback and Couples Counseling into a hybrid I call ‘Interpersonal Biofeedback.’ It has been shown to increase marital satisfaction as couples learn to control their ‘fight-or-flight’ responses. I have published and lectured at professional conferences on Biofeedback in K–12 schools. I have offices in Santa Clarita and West Los Angeles.”
