Nima Ghorbani, PhD, is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Tehran, and is also a certified Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapist in Tehran, Iran. He has developed the Integrative Self-Knowledge construct with the assistance of Professor P. J. Watson from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, as a model to explain changes within the personality based on such a core intrapsychic process. This is a construct which aims to explain one of the intrapersonal processes of change in experiential and self-knowledge based psychotherapies. Dr. Ghorbani’s cross-cultural research is mostly focused on integrative self-knowledge, self-control, mindfulness, and experiential aspects of religiousness. He has published many research articles on these topics in professional, peer-review journals. His research is based on hermeneutical-dialogical empiricism in which observer and observed are objectively examined in intrapersonal, interpersonal, and inter-cultural levels.
