Don’t miss the Cohort Experience 

You want the freedom and flexibility to self-guide your Processwork training experience, so it matches your goals, and works with your resources and timing needs.

But it can be really lonely and hard, studying on your own.

Students love faculty, the curriculum, the school, but it is the cohort and in person residency experience that supercharges the learning.

Our students consistently report that the residency and cohort experience makes the difference in their processwork learning journey at PWI.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your Processwork training and work toward recognition as a Processwork Diplomate in a self-guided program with our cohort experience offering.

The Cohort Experience does not lead to or confer an academic or professional credential of any kind. The Cohort Experience is a social learning activity offering which includes short recreational intensives, typically delivered in Oregon, but may also be scheduled in other locations.  

The Self-Guided Diploma Program program is affiliated with the International Association of Process-oriented Psychology (IAPOP) and provides a pathway to recognition as a Processwork Diplomate by PWI and the IAPOP international community. The Self-Guided Diploma Program does not confer any academic degree, nor can it be used as the basis for licensure, admittance into an academic program, or membership in any other professional association besides IAPOP.
