"Since the Process Work Seminar on facilitation I get consistently better ratings from clients. The discussions are richer, the participation levels higher and the overall depth of the learning has been greatly enhanced. I have used Process Work with equal success in nonprofits and in high tech, with first level managers to executives. I can't imagine anyone who would not benefit significantly from both Stephen's facilitation and this seminal work."

Informative Approaches

Stephen's work is informed by a number of modalities including his early studies of Carl Roger's client centered approaches, early group work studies, psychodynamic and Jungian approaches and more. In there late 1980's he immersed himself in the study of Process Work becoming the President of the Process Work Institute for many years. 

Process Work is an innovative approach to individual and collective change that combines psychology, spirituality, social and system awareness into a single coherent framework. Its broad spectrum applications include applications to group dynamics; system change; and community and organizational development. Process Work was developed in the late 1970s when Dr. Arnold Mindell, a Jungian analyst in Zurich, Switzerland, began researching illness as a meaningful expression of the unconscious mind. 

Stephen has applied all of the above frameworks to develop a process-oriented approach to working with systems and organizations. he uses a multi leveled approach which has the capacity to work deeply with diverse agendas in both large and small group settings. Using skills in the areas of communication, relationship dynamics, large and small group dynamics, conflict facilitation, strategic initiatives, organizational change and personal coaching, the process-oriented approach provides a framework whereby the difficulties and challenges arising during the change process can be addressed and developed to cultivate greater creativity, collaboration and effectiveness.
