2014 Introductory Institute

How Connections Heal: Founding Concepts and Practical Applications of Relational-Cultural Theory
Date: October 24-26, 2014
Location: Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA


The Introductory Institute is a unique opportunity for the intensive study of Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) and its direct applications in the world. This approach rests on the premise that growth-fostering connections are the central human necessity and disconnections are a primary source of human suffering. In particular, relationships are profoundly influenced by cultural contexts.

In addition to interactive presentations and workshops led by Institute Faculty, learning activities will include small and large group case discussions, community-building, role-plays, and multi-media presentations. Ideal for clinicians, social workers, educators, organizational leaders, and parents. Some knowledge of the Relational-Cultural Model is helpful.
