Academic Statement (Return to top)

Wayne received his Doctorate in Psychology and his Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from United States International University (now, Alliant International University), where he also served as Associate Professor of Psychology/Human Behavior, and Director of the Doctorate programs in Psychology, specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy, and the Masters program in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling.  He left USIU in 1992 to accept an appointment as faculty member in the Resident Degree Program at Prescott College.  Wayne was selected as the Human Development Program Coordinator in 1992 and was elected by the RDP Faculty as both Interim Dean in 1995 and Dean from 1996-2000.  Wayne also served two, two-year terms as Director of Skyview School, one of the first charter schools in Arizona.  Skyview School is a K-8 charter school in Prescott, using Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences as a philosophical and pedagogical approach to educating students.  Currently, Wayne serves as the President of the Skyview School Board of Directors.

Wayne’s specialization is in systems theory, specifically, applying Murray Bowen’s family systems theory to multi-disciplinary settings.  To this end, Wayne has applied Bowen theory to a number of  professional endeavors, including his clinical work with individuals, couples, and families; leadership as a dean, school director, and board officer; mediator, conciliator, and trainer through the Superior Court of Arizona; and educator at Prescott College. 

At Prescott College, Wayne teaches the following classes:  Models of Leadership: Leadership through Differentiation; Community Mediation and Principled Negotiation; Social Psychology: The Meaning of Contemporary Events; Psychohistory of the American Presidency; Family Systems Theory; American Government: Power, Politics, and the Enlightenment Vision; Counseling Skills; and Family Systems in Film and Literature.

Wayne is licensed as both a Psychologist in Arizona and a Marriage and Family Therapist in California.  He is also a certified mediator, conciliator, and trainer through the Superior Court of Arizona, Yavapai County, where he mediates domestic, civil, and victim-offender cases, provides conciliation counseling for couples seeking a divorce who are also considering reconciliation, and trains domestic and victim-offender mediators.

Wayne has published a number of journal articles and chapters in edited books.  His 2011 book, Applying Systems Theory to Mediation: A Practitioner’s Guide, published through Rowman & Littlefield/University Press of America, seeks to apply family systems theory to the emerging field of mediation.
