Walter Bera, PhD


Welcome to the personal website of Walter Bera, PhD. psychologist, family therapist, Buddhist and martial artist. I am the Founder, Director and Owner of the Narrative Therapy based Kenwood Therapy Center, LLC in Minneapolis from 2000 until I completed a long planned transition and closed the company and Center building in 2017. I retired my clinical practice and supervision services and in 2017 began a personal and professional Sabbatical.

Since 1976, I have been a therapist, teacher, researcher and writer with special interests in the development of clinical theory and practice around issues of abuse, power, ethics and politics.

I created this as a resource for friends, colleagues and workshop participants to easily find information, downloadable writings, videos, photos, and more. It covers my interests and work in psychology, family therapy, philosophy, Buddhism, and martial arts. A diverse set of ideas and practices for mind, body and spirit. It also allows me to share works in progress for feedback and review.
