Meet Your Instructor: Debra Pearce-McCall

Posted by PCC Institute for Health Professionals on January 11, 2017
Debra Pearce-McCall is an instructor for PCC's Interpersonal Neurobiology program. She teaches Ethics from an IPNB Perspective.

Debra Pearce-McCall .jpgDebra Pearce-McCall, PhD, a psychologist and consultant, brings a compassionate, engaging, multidisciplinary perspective on our relating minds and brains into her work with adult well-being, leadership, ethics, and helping those who help others. A student of the mind and human systems since the seventies, she calls IPNB “systems 3.0”; delights in the integrative and wide-ranging applications of the framework; and finds joy in helping people in many fields apply it to their work and lives.


Debra’s grateful to have participated in Allan Schore’s Oregon study group for years; and to have been selected for Daniel J. Siegel’s “train the trainers” immersion in 2005. The latter led to an applications follow-up weekend, where Debra chose to present her take on IPNB and leadership, which led her to create workshops/classes on leadership and ethics, and to writing about IPNB leadership applications, including an article with Dan. With a deep commitment to building the IPNB community, Debra helped the Global Association for Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies (GAINS) grow, including serving as President and as an Editor for GAINS publications - co-editing the journal for many years alongside Bonnie Badenoch, and editing two e-books. During its decade as an offering, Debra helped design and served as faculty in PSU’s academic IPNB certificate program, developing several classes, and methods of creating community at distance and online. Her greatest delights there were co-teaching a one-time offering with Steven Porges and Sue Carter; and all the meaningful, inspiring translations of IPNB into everyday being and action she witnessed through the diverse students.

Knowing the impact IPNB can have, Debra is now delighted to be part of the faculty and design team for the PCC IPNB Certificate program and looks forward to discussing relational and professional ethics with the brain in mind with you. If you have read this far, definitely consider taking one of the classes in the program! A licensed psychologist and relationship therapist and approved supervisor, a leadership coach and Senior Consultant for the Creating WE Institute, Debra provides consultations and workshops in Portland Oregon, online, and on site.
