Anita came to Australia as a refugee from the Balkans war in 2001. Since that time, she has completed an Honours degree and a PhD in Psychology at Victoria University.
Concurrent with the 3.5 years of her PhD study, she has held positions as a Family Therapist, Disability Worker, Community Worker, Youth Justice Worker as well as working as a Lecturer in Psychology.
She has employed scholarly teaching practices and introspection that motivate and inspire students to learn. She piloted and tested a new educational program for emotional literacy among students and lecturers.
Anita is passionate about research and she is particularly driven by a need to understand the interconnection of the psychological, social and political dimensions of trauma. She specialized in phenomenology and mixed method (first – second – and –third person) research approaches to study the nature of consciousness from a non-materialist perspective.
Anita has had the great privilege to work as a designated retreat counsellor under the guidance of Lama Alan Wallace, since 2017. This sacred service gave her opportunity to expand her knowledge, deepen her practice, devotion and compassion. Anita’s academic, personal and professional experiences have enabled her to draw a connection between psychology and other disciplines, and to communicate different concepts and methods clearly to fellow retreatants, researchers and scientists from various cultural, social and professional backgrounds.
Her enthusiasm and commitment to working in the area of compassion and reconciliation was recognized by the Victorian Refugee Recognition Record for outstanding efforts and commendable achievements to the community and the State of Victoria. Anita works as the Head of Social Sciences at Endeavour College in Australia serves on the Board of Directors of the CCR Europe, and conducts research at CCR North America.
Her heart desire is to contribute to CCR centers around the world.
