Liesenfeld Research Institute was founded in 2017 by Dr. Kerstin Liesenfeld with a special focus on research for the development of the authentic self. Liesenfeld Research Institute is affiliated to TUFTS UNIVERSITY, School of Public Health and Community Medicine in Boston MA, USA.
Our mission is to foster, connect and draw current psychological and neuroscientific research and application in coaching, personality development and counseling closer together to utilize and implement profound knowledge in an effective, sustainable and competent way. We aim for manageability of psychological and neuroscientific research without the necessity of reducing its complexity.
Our goal is to contribute to the understanding how to accompany individuals and communities professionally with their personal growth processes and to support them in establishing an authentic and healthy self-concept. As we draw specific tangible and relevant questions for research out of current problems and experiences practitioners engage with, we hope to facilitate implementation of findings and solutions directly and more easily. Bringing research and practice closer together, our intention is to meet alignment and change processes at a new, higher, more intelligent – cognitive and emotional – holistic level of understanding.
Developed in Boston (USA) but with roots in Hamburg (GERMANY), Liesenfeld Research Institute considers itself a global institution which values and respects different views and standpoints. Our research questions serve the understanding and advancement of profound psychological and neuroscientific research in coaching, personality development and counseling settings.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
