World Work Facilitators
Jennifer Kleskie Process Work Diplomate
Filipina–American Jennifer Kleskie has spent much time attempting to deepen her understanding of the problems that exist in the world. These musings began before the age of 5 years old, as she questioned the whereabouts of her biological parents and perplexed over finding an appropriate response to “What…are you?”
As she grew, she decided there was no better way to proceed in life than to continue pursuing an answer to, “Who are you?” and “What do you think you are doing here, anyway?” These questions led her to explore and train in Process Work. Now, as a certified Process Worker and conflict facilitator she helps to bring a larger awareness to the dynamics that co–create conflict and adversary. While working with individual and family problems, groups and organizations, she addresses issues related to abuse and trauma, poverty and marginalization, interpersonal and trans–generational conflicts. While seeking to integrate various levels of power and diversity awareness, she looks to understand the deeper meaning or teleology behind the conflict rather than maintain the pathological view of the person or identified problem. This is one formulation of how “deep democracy” might be applied.
Jennifer is most thrilled that she has begun to work with a Civil Military Operations School in the Philippines that is dedicated to mitigating the conflict within their nation. This past year she received the Diplomat–Warrior Award from the Philippine Military, a powerful symbol of the nation’s peace–building initiative.
Jennifer is a member of the International Association of Process–Oriented Psychology, is a Process Work Diplomate and holds a Masters in Conflict–Facilitation and Organizational Change.
