George E. Monroe grew up in a small town in the southern hill country of America’s heartland where his creative learning style was not always understood or appreciated. His different insights were often challenged or rejected by his family and others in the provincial environs of his home community. At the same time, numerous experiences of guided serendipity, including the timely appearances of caring mentors, enabled him to transcend these limitations and become a gifted teacher. In subject areas ranging from social studies to science, and at grade levels from elementary to graduate school, he has always vigorously pursued cutting edge information to help himself and his students think outside the box.
He obtained his Ph.D. in an interdisciplinary program focused on facilitating change processes in educational organizations. Completion of post-doctoral programs also enabled him to become a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and an Approved Consultant in Clinical Hypnosis.
After fourteen years of teaching and developing outreach programs at the University of Illinois in Chicago, he left academia to establish a private practice of psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis.
He currently serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Fund For The Erevna International Peace (FEIPC), a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Maryland, USA, that supports development of he Erevna International Peace Center (EIPC) headquartered on the Island of Cyprus.
The EIPC has been granted Roster Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations and he is a designated Representative of the EIPC for participation in ECOSOC functions and programs at the UN Headquarters in New York.

Dr. Monroe currently resides with his wife, Merle, in Evanston, Illinois.
