Senior Instructor

Terry Marks-Tarlow

I grew up in New Jersey and moved to California where I received my B.A. in psychology from Stanford University and my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UCLA. During graduate school, I was trained primarily in cognitive-behavioral work and sought additional training at the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles (GTILA), eventually becoming President. I received training in hypnosis from Jean Holroyd and Michael Diamond at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute, plus studied guided imagery with Muriel Fuller. I pursued analytic self-psychology from Lynne Jacobs. For over a decade, I have been studying interpersonal neurobiology and regulation theory with Allan Schore. I have taught developmental neurobiology at the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and at Reiss Davis Child Studies Center. I am currently an adjunct faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute and at California Institute for Integral Studies, as well as core teaching faculty at the Insight Center in Los Angeles where I conduct workshops and seminars. I have written and edited a number of books, including A Fractal Epistemology for a Scientific Psychology: Bridging the Persona with the Transpersonal (Cambridge Scholars, 2020); Truly Mindful Coloring (PESI, 2017); Awakening Clinical Intuition: An Experiential Workbook for Psychotherapists (Norton, 2014); Clinical Intuition in Psychotherapy: The Neurobiology of Embodied Response (Norton, 2012); and Psyche's Veil: Psychotherapy, Fractals and Complexity (Routledge, 2008).
