Process Orientated Psychology
Arnold and Amy Mindell
Arny Mindell developed process work or what is called today, “process oriented psychology” (p.o.p.), in the mid 1970’s. Beginning with Taoism, physics and Jungian psychology, by the 1990’s, he expanded process work to include quantum theory and a deeper form of democracy that applied to all states of consciousness for individuals and groups. Now process work applies to individual therapy, body problems, coma and near death experiences, large group, and organizational change management.
