Elizabeth Bader has been a lawyer, mediator, coach and teacher. She also holds a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) Certificate — a certificate awarded after more than 200 hours of training on trauma.
Understanding the connections between trauma, psychology and conflict resolution has been the core of Elizabeth’s work. Her award-winning insights on dealing with “face” and “ego” issues in conflict resolution have won her high praise in both the psychology and conflict resolution/legal communities.
In a recent article, Elizabeth has also clarified the neurobiological links between issues of “face,” ego and self-identity in mediation and fight and flight responses to conflict. This ground-breaking work connects the psychology of interpersonal conflict with the work of Peter Levine and Stephen Porges, among others.
Currently, Elizabeth’s work centers on sharing her reflections on the relationship between spirituality, psychology, trauma and conflict resolution. Her writings can be found in various journals and books and on this website.
