Connecting with the World: 2014 Capacity Campaign

Our Vision

We believe Process Work offers a unique approach to inner work, therapy/coaching and group facilitation that can discover unexpected solutions from our most difficult challenges and promote a culture of deep democracy.

We want to grow our capacity to share, teach and develop Process Work in collaboration with other teaching centers.

For over twenty-five years, the Process Work Institute has been supporting the teaching and application of Process Work together with an international community of dedicated learners and teachers.  We belong to the International Association of Process-Oriented Psychology (IAPOP) and are part of a network of Process Work teaching centers and institutes around the world.

We invite you to join us by contributing to our 2014 capacity campaign.

Connecting with the world: Collaborative Research Program ($10,000 goal)

Help build the evidence base for Process Work! 

All around the world, centers for Process Oriented Psychology are working to build recognition for Process Work in a variety of fields including psychotherapy, organisational development, and post-conflict work.

We want to build on and support these existing efforts through international collaboration, coordination and focused, significant investment.  We believe that coordinated, high quality research that demonstrates the value of Process Work will uplift all of our community and support individual schools, practitioners and teachers.

PWI is working with IAPOP and DDI to jointly coordinate and develop an international research program to document the practices and outcomes of Processwork and Deep Democracy.

The Research Program will develop a high-quality evidence base, with long-term outcomes including:

  • A body of completed empirical research with a mix of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies.
  • Peer reviewed academic publications representing the spectrum of Process Work applications.
  • Collaborative research projects with university, non-government and government partners.
  • PhD scholarships to support cutting-edge doctoral research on Process Work and Deep Democracy applications.

What will your donation achieve?

  1. Research Project Funding – to fund or kickstart individual projects. 
  2. Research Program Infrastructure – grant writing, website and communications, funder relationships, ethics, proposal development, research management. 
  3. Coordination and Research Mentorship – support for individuals and schools developing and completing research, journal articles, conference presentations. 


Connecting with the world: Student Scholarships (ongoing)

Our student scholarship fund supports the participation of people from lower socio-economic backgrounds or from countries with lesser financial resources and in doing so, contributes to the  development and richness of our whole community.  Contributing to this fund is a powerful form of worldwork and promotes the Process Work commitment to deep democracy.

If you live locally, you can also contribute by offering affordable accommodation – and enjoy meeting the extraordinary, dedicated individuals who seek out our programs.
