Dr. Bigda-Peyton

Dr. Frances Bigda-Peyton, a graduate of the Certificate Program, came to BGSP with a doctorate from Boston University. Her published article in Modern Psychoanalysis, When Drives Are Dangerous: Drive Theory and Resource Overconsumption, led Dr. Bigda-Peyton to an interesting application of her psychoanalytic training. She is currently on the board of E + Co of New Jersey, a large, environmental non-profit whose mission is to provide clean energy to developing nations.

“In addition to the work I do in my private practice, I am able to help with social marketing, a direct outgrowth of understanding resistances and working with them. It has been an intriguing application.” Dr. Bigda-Peyton is also a co-founder of Common Purpose, the largest battery treatment program in Massachusetts.
