Elizabeth Nelson, Ph.D. is core faculty and Research Coordinator in the Depth Psychotherapy program and the Director of Pacifica's Dissertation Office. She has been teaching courses in research, writing, and dissertation development at Pacifica since 2002. In 2005, she and co-author Joseph Coppin published The Art of Inquiry, used across programs at Pacifica and at other graduate schools, which expresses many key ideas about inquiry centered on the living psyche. Elizabeth's interest in research is the flowering of 30 years professional experience as a writer, editor, and book coach for aspiring authors through her consulting company Winged Feat, a name inspired by a dream nearly 20 years ago. Her own research interests focus on mythologies of feminine power and cultural expressions of the shadow and evil. Elizabeth is a lifelong athlete, a certified massage therapist, and an avid student of Tarot, Runes, and archetypal astrology.PUBLICATIONS INCLUDE: The Art of Inquiry: A Depth Psychological Perspective, Co-Authored with Joe Coppin, Ph.D. Areas of Emphasis: Research Methodologies and Dissertation Development
