Process Work and Organizational Excellence:
Individual and Executive Coaching.

With Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder
Thursday 10th to Sunday 13th February, 2011
*Friday is a National Holiday in Japan


We are excited to announce that Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder, a well-known international facilitator and trainer in Process Work will be presenting a training in Process Work in Japan. The seminar will be presented in English with Japanese translation.

This seminar: In this workshop we will explore in depth the range of skills that Process Work has to offer to individual and executive Coaches. Participants will be guided through a series of demonstration and exercises designed to cultivate Process Work coaching skills. One of the central tenets of Process Work is that the resolution to a challenging situation or problem can be found within the very nature of the problem itself. Exploring and unfolding these moments allows for deep insights, understanding and the transformation of difficult moments into enriching experiences for the executive or client, those in communication with them and for the organizational system as a whole. There will also be a focus on the development of the coach recognizing that our own personal development is inextricably tied to the development of our clients. The seminar will be experiential, with theoretical presentations followed by demonstrations, exercises and group interaction. The seminar will be presented and facilitated to ensure optimal learning for both those familiar with Process work and those who are just beginning, as well beginning and more experienced coaches. All are welcome!

What we will cover:

  • Process Work structural analysis including primary and secondary processes, channels and amplification.
  • The value of disturbance and dreams as methods for transformation.
  • The importance of vision and myth in coaching.
  • Mapping the emerging direction of a process.
  • Recognizing and working with critical moments in coaching including growth points or edges, edge behavior and edge figures.
  • Integration and anchoring new patterns.
  • Cultivating effective meta-skills in working with clients.


Learning Outcomes:

Participants will be provided with:

  • An immersion in Process Work coaching and mentoring.
  • A toolkit which can be applied in a wide range of coaching settings.
  • An in depth understanding of interpersonal communication with a focus on transformation, edges and edge awareness.
  • Skills in integrating coaching sessions back into the workplace.
  • Personal development, awareness and the cultivation of our coaching style and metaskills.


More on Process work: Process Work is a cross-disciplinary approach to support individual and collective change. It developed in the 1970s and 1980s in Zurich, Switzerland by Dr. Arnold Mindell, a Jungian analyst. Process Work, aalso known as Process-Oriented Psychology, offers new ways of working with areas of life that are experienced as problematic or painful. Physical symptoms, relationship problems, 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 and physics, Process Work believes that the solution to problems is often contained within the disturbances themselves. Process Work provides a practical framework through which individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations can connect with greater effectiveness and creativity. Process Work adopts a sense of deep democracy whereby each aspect of ourselves is seen to be meaningful and important and offers valuable information for us when explored and unfolded. Similarly within an organization, each member holds important and vital contribution to the group's well-being and effectiveness. www.processwork.org
