Creating Promising Futures Through Social Construction
Celiane is a lecturer, researcher and practitioner working at the interface of psychology, health/wellbeing, community building, education, process design and organizational development. Her work focuses on relational forms of practices that enable the creation of environments where more effective means of collaboration and decision-making are enhanced. She holds a Ph.D. from her native Brazil, at the University of Sao Paulo. While completing my doctoral dissertation, she expanded her research to explore communication theory at the University of New Hampshire, USA where she spent one year as a visiting scholar.
She has lived and worked in many parts of the world. As a Brazilian, moving to England, then to the USA, Taiwan, Singapore and finally to The Netherlands, she has cultivated a cross-cultural understanding and a sensitivity to differences. All these movements, and the intertwined experiences that have accompanied them, have given her a fluid professional identity. With this interdisciplinary background, combined with a cross cultural experience, she is engaged in blurring disciplinary boundaries and integrating different ways of knowing to help tackle complex matters.
Celiane is also part of the Taos Institute's Ph.D. program, being the liaison between the Universities and TAOS as well as supervising PhD students. She is faculty at the Relational Leading Masters program (in collaboration with Middlesex University) and the facilitator of the online SC workshops.
In the Netherlands, she is a Lecturer and Researcher at the NHTV University of Applied Sciences (http://www.nhtv.nl/ENG.html). Specifically in Amsterdam she is a country specialist at KIT/Intercultural Professionals, Amsterdam (http://www.interculturalprofessionals.com/), consulting and training professionals working in an international environment as well as families when moving abroad.
