Process-Oriented Psychology or Process Work, as developed by Dr. Arnold Mindell, is an awareness practice centered around the belief that the solution to a problem is contained within the disturbance itself. It is an innovative approach to individual and collective change that combines psychology, spirituality, and creative expression into a single paradigm. It provides practical tools and interventions to reveal deeper meaning and patterns in challenging experiences.
