About Us

Our Mission is to study and promote the understanding of conflict processes and intervention from the transformative framework.

We seek to grow the acceptance and adoption of the model by serving transformative practitioners, those interested in the transformative model, and the broader field – anywhere in the world, especially where we have local champions supporting the work.

We emphasize our unique strengths including a model rooted in theory with  clear and articulated values that drives our practice across a variety of arenas, and our champions – the people who believe in this work and give their time and talents to supporting the mission of the ISCT.

We are sustained by fees for our services, membership fees, product sales, event fees, grants, and donations.

Our network is international and virtual. Read more about our international community here.  Read about our virtual training and other ways to connect here.

ISCT Board, Fellows, Hubs, Management Team and Staff

The ISCT Board of Directors

ISCT Board members provide oversight and guidance on mission and objectives,  ensure that the mission of the organization is honored,  and that the organization’s resources are used wisely in support of that purpose.  Our Board must have between 8-14 people including 4-7 fellows.  Board members hold 3 year staggered terms with a maximum of two consecutive terms.  Board members are nominated by the ISCT Nominating Committee, a committee made up of members and fellows. 

ISCT Fellows

Fellows are individuals who are committed to the transformative approach of practice, who share responsibility for its growth, development, and sustenance. Fellows exist to protect the integrity of the transformative approach and support ethical practice that is aligned to the approach.  Fellows are persons who have and continue to make significant contributions to the growth of transformative practice and/or to the Institute.  Learn how to become a fellow HERE


Hubs are a gathering of Transformative practitioners, trainers, scholars, organizations, training centers and affiliates who share a common mother tongue (other than English), or who are located in a specific country/region, and who are willing to organize themselves and provide some services to their members, and connect with the ISCT.  Like all of the ISCT, Hubs support inclusivity and connection for both Language and Culture.  Hubs and the ISCT are mutually supportive.  Both keep the other informed about their work and effort.  Each hopes to learn from the other.
