Christopher W.

United States


I am a broadly experienced specialist in the field of human growth and development across the life span and in countless contexts of expression. My expertise in core realms of psycho-social development has led to immersion in hands-on work with individuals, couples, families, institutions, and communities and at many of the points of the convergence of these in the United States and abroad. Thoroughly steeped in systems theory, I have effective skills for perceiving, interpreting and engaging with others to actualize the drive to satisfy growth needs at every level of the human experience from the most basic survival and security needs to the loftiest of spiritual visions. At this point in personal and professional development I am most often confident and experienced enough to expertly meet others where they are at nearly any point of growth need or opportunity. Immersion experiences in a variety of cultures, ethnicity, social and economic, gender and psycho-social presentations provides me with a willingness to “go anywhere” that human growth and development needs help to get unstuck, stabilized, freed, enhanced, elevated and accelerated. My career has included: • Child and family therapy • Community and institutional program development substantiating decentralization in post-revolution (“People Power”) Philippines • Design and implementation of adult learning and change models in government and non-government institutions impacting multiple countries and many cultures • Special education and case management with children with severe-profound affective disabilities • Design and training for delivery of trauma-informed “safety net” supported family, enterprise and workforce recovery programming in disaster struck and opportunity-catalyzed communities My current life and career goal is to find opportunities to continue to weave the thread of human development freedom and fulfillment in my work, wherever this opportunity is meaningfully presented.
