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.

Also known as Process-Oriented Psychology, Process Work offers new ways of engaging 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.

Process Work is an in-depth methodology and requires a degree of self-awareness and commitment to learning about self and others.
