Organisation and teaching


The School of Arte del Processo is the first school in Italy of ProcessWork, Counselling and Process-Oriented Facilitation for the transformation of conflict.

As a founding part of the path, every year the school organises educational seminars (Open Seminars) which are mandatory for students. They are dedicated to specific topics all covering different aspects of ProcessWork and its applications, thanks to the facilitation by native Italian teachers and by highly experienced well known international teachers.


The Open Seminars are held in some cities in Italy and online on Zoom to allow wide participation. They are held in Italian and English and are open to the public in the first 3 days, upon payment of the membership fee of € 20.

The supervision seminars are dedicated to registered students of the school who attend the training days that take place on Monday and Tuesday following the open seminars.

During the year we also organise experiential workshops, free webinars and many other initiatives for deepening our understanding of a range of issues. The school supports courses and training that have themes related or complementary to the Arte del Processo (partner events). To see the full schedule of current initiatives, CLICK HERE.
