Institute Staff and Board of Directors

Elaine Baskin, Ph.D., Executive Director, Board Member

Elaine took the Process in 1974 as a single parent. In 1976 and 1981, she considered training as a Process Therapist, but wisely recognized that was not her “Right Livelihood.”   In 1989, she joined the Board of Directors, and was President 1990-1995.  In 2003, Elaine became Executive Director of the Institute For Personal Change.  She believes that the Process is the most important therapeutic work that she has ever done, and is extremely grateful to be able to share The Process with others.
