Vassiliki works internationally as a therapist, educator and group facilitator. She is a faculty member in the Diploma Program and in the Masters in Conflict Resolution and Organizational Change Program at the Process Work Institute in Portland, Oregon. She is a trainer in the Process Work Center in Greece.
Her more recent work with non-governmental organizations focuses on women’s empowerment and support of marginalized populations (Chiapas-Mexico, Palestine). For the past years she has been part of the facilitation team in conflict resolution trainings between Israelis and Palestinians. She is facilitates workshops with Greek and Turkish Cypriots on issues of reconciliation and community building. She has facilitated group dialogues between Moroccan and American students in Morocco in the context of the film “Crossing Borders” (www.crossingbordersfilm.org).
Her main interest is in group work, conflict resolution, women’s empowerment, and the interconnections between politics, psychology and creativity. She explores how awareness and access of personal wisdom is crucial in working with conflict. She is also interested in working on sexuality as a way to access our vital and creative energy and to connect with others and with the mystery of life. She explores filmmaking as a medium for social change.
Vassiliki, in collaboration with Bushra Azzouz, has produced a documentary, “The Women of Cyprus” (www.womenofcyprusfilm.com), which portrays how a group of Turkish and Greek Cypriot women handle conflict, explores the hidden histories of the divided island, the meanings of safety and home, and the women’s will to live together again. The documentary has been screened internationally (Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Palestine, U.K., U.S.A, Mexico).
