Joanne Gozawa Ph.D.
Core Faculty in Transformative Studies and Transformative Learning
Joanne Gozawa received her Ph.D. in Integral Studies with a concentration in Learning and Change in Human Systems from CIIS in 2000. She has taught at CIIS (Organic Inquiry), the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, and at Presidio World College. Her experiences in transformative learning and sensitivity to cultural differences have focused her practice on evoking a field that is inclusive and nonjudgmental, a field of mutuality that gives groups of diverse participants the safety in which to question their deep assumptions. She has applied her approach to classes in transformative learning and to organizations interested in transforming conflict into collaboration. She hopes to broaden the theoretical ground of transformative learning with her work.
