Terri Goslin-Jones, PhD, serves as Psychology/Creativity Studies faculty at Saybrook University.

Her reason for teaching is to support life-long learners who are on a personal quest to create change in their life and in their part of the world. Creativity is at the heart of her work. Terri believes that every person has a creative, unique spirit, and that creative energy is a vehicle for growth. In her dissertation, The Perceived Effects of Person-Centered Expressive Arts on One's Work, Terri wrote, "Work can be a sacred place where people are giving birth to their deepest passions and creative spirit."

In her private practice as a workplace psychologist, Terri works with individuals and groups. Her business mission is to "Discover the Wonder of People at Work™." Her consulting work includes several key areas: creativity and expressive arts-based learning, coaching, leadership development, mindfulness, and team building. Terri has found that work becomes more meaningful when creativity is nurtured in the workplace through the expression of a person's unique gifts, talents, and perspectives.

Terri completed her doctorate in psychology and also completed a two-year Person-Centered Expressive Arts certificate program as well as the Creativity Studies certificate. Terri teaches courses in Art-based Inquiry, Coaching, Creativity, Expressive Arts, Leadership, Humanistic Psychology, Personal Mythology and Poetry. She is a Registered Expressive Arts Consultant/Educator (REACE) and serves as an International Expressive Arts Therapist Association board member. 

Terri is a mindfulness facilitator and completed UCLA's Mindfulness Research Awareness Center Trainers program (MARC). She is in the third year of an advanced training program in Poetic Medicine with the Institute for Poetic Medicine.

Terri completed the 20-day, Nine-Gates Mystery School, an experiential immersion from the Celtic, African, Native American, Spiritual Psychology, Sufi, esoteric Christian, Hindu, Sound Healing, Kabbalah, and Buddhist traditions. She has a passion for exploring humanistic and transpersonal psychology, world religions, and multi-cultural worldviews.

She received certification in coaching (ICF through Lee Hecht Harrison), MBTI, HOGAN, Dimensional management training, Dismantling Racism-NCCJ, International Association of Quality Circles, and Leadership Effectiveness Analysis 360 Feedback.
