Emotional Pathways with Dr. Juliet Rohde-Brown

Dr. Juliet Rohde-Brown is a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY 20964). Her orientation is integrative, and she embraces a multicultural perspective in her psychotherapeutic practice. She is also a core faculty member and the director of practicum for a doctoral program in psychology (www.antiochsb.edu).

Juliet has worked with brain-injured individuals and in psychiatric inpatient settings as well as in community counseling environments and private practice. She is committed to respecting the fact that while human beings share many common features, each individual is unique in temperament, behavior, inner reflection and socio-cultural background. She respects the many ways of knowing in a diverse social system: the rational, empirical, and intuitive.

Juliet is a founding member and current board member of the Sacred Earth Foundation (www.sacredearthfound.org) and an advisory board member for the Santa Barbara Restorative Justice Neighborhood Initiative. Currently, she is the president-elect for Imagery International (http://www.imageryinternational.org/).

She has spoken internationally on forgiveness and related topics. Some of her research on forgiveness and emotions in the divorcing process is to be published in the Journal of Divorce and Remarriage this coming year and her book, Imagine Forgiveness: A Guide for Creating a Joyful Future is available through various popular book-selling venues. She has also received a “Just Plain Folks” Award in 2009 in the self-help genre for her CD Feel Forgiveness Now, part of a series in collaboration with Shantha Sri and Energi Music (http://www.energimusic.com).

Juliet’s participation in meditative practices informs her work in the world both personally and professionally. The practice of metta, or loving-kindness meditation, has had a particularly important impact on her life and on her own process of forgiveness, as has working with imagery, dreams, and sacred ceremony. Her latest interests focus on moving from the individual into the collective, particularly in relation to compassion-based practices. She has been following Daniel Siegel’s work in interpersonal neurobiology since the publication of his book The Developing Mind in the 1990’s (www.mindsightinstitute.com). She also recommends the website www.forgiveforgood.com.

She lives in Carpinteria, California, just south of Santa Barbara with her husband, artist James Paul Brown(www.jamespaulbrown.com).
