Process Work (also known as Process Oriented Psychology) is a cross-disciplinary approach to support individual and collective change. It was developed when Dr. Arnold Mindell, a Jungian analyst in Zurich, Switzerland, began researching illness as a meaningful expression of the unconscious mind.
Also, known as Process Oriented Psychology (POP) or dreambody work, Process Work offers new ways of working with areas of life that are experienced as problematic or painful. Physical symptoms, relationship challenges, group conflicts and social tensions, when approached with curiosity and respect, can lead to new information that is vital for personal and collective growth.
With its roots in Jungian psychology, Taoism and physics, Process Work believes that the solution to a problem is contained within the disturbance itself and provides a practical framework through which individuals, couples, families and groups can connect with greater awareness and creativity.
It is often referred to as an awareness practice and seeks to illuminate our whole experience.
