The Hoffman Process is a unique, intensive, psycho-emotional education program in which 90,000 people have participated worldwide since 1967. It is currently offered in 10 countries. A review of existing research from 1985 to 2013 shows that participating in the week-long program has a positive and lasting affect on overall psychological adjustment, in particular reducing negative affect while improving positive affect, health, and well-being. The relationship with one’s self and with family members has also been found to benefit from the Process, along with professional performance and emotional competence in the work environment. The Process is in line with recent and mainstream scientific disciplines, and its techniques concur with various evidence-based methods in a structured and practice-oriented manner. Several renowned scientists have provided testimonials on their own experience and appraisals of the Hoffman Process.

Professors Michael R. Levenson and Carolyn M. Aldwin of the University of California at Davis presented the findings of their three-year, grant* research study on the Hoffman Process in the Nov/ Dec 2006 issue of the scientific peer review journal, “EXPLORE, The Journal of Science and Healing.”
This university peer review research shows that Hoffman Process participants experienced lasting significant reductions in depression, anxiety and obsessive/compulsive tendencies, coupled with lasting significant increases in emotional intelligence, life satisfaction, compassion, vitality and forgiveness. A world-wide search of the research literature shows that no other treatments or interventions produce lasting, significant reductions in negative affects, while simultaneously producing such increases in positive affects.
*“Grant” research means that the University owns the data and researchers are expected to publish their findings, whatever the outcome.
According to Ron Meister, Ph.D., and an administrative research director, “These research findings indicate that the overall changes available to a Hoffman Process participant are, by any standard, quite remarkable.”
