Association for Conflict Resolution - Chicago Chapter
Elizabeth joined us in August for a fascinating program on her work as a shaman and its applicability to mediation practice. Join us for Part II, when Elizabeth will share more information and continue the discussion.
Elizabeth has been a mediator in New York since 1997. After graduating from Columbia University with her Masters in Social Work, Elizabeth went to work for the New York Peace Institute (now Safe Horizon). During her tenure, she became a certified mediation trainer – a certification she still holds.
In 2004, Elizabeth left Safe Horizon and opened her private practice as a professional mediator and coach. She studied coaching from 2004 – 2006, and received her coaching certifications from Coaches Training Institute (CTI). She has additional training in Organizational and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) developed by the Center for Right Relationship.
Elizabeth began to train in the healing practice of shamanism in 2007 after she met and had a profound life changing experience with a shaman in New York City. She studied at the Four Winds Society from 2008 to 2010 and continues to train and be mentored by the shaman there to this day. Elizabeth sees approximately 150 shaman clients a year in New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis and San Francisco.
She has been integrating her work as a healing practitioner and her work in conflict resolution ever since, and lectures on the two subjects throughout the year. Training and teaching is one of her most rewarding endeavors, and to that end, she works as an adjunct professor at Cardozo Law School, Fordham Law School and The New School for Social Research – Graduate Program in Psychology. In addition to these positions, Elizabeth runs her own boutique mediation training program where she mentors a limited number of students each year.
