What is a Institute Fellow?

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 Support the ISCT and the transformative Approach by:

  • Guiding, researching, studying, and  promoting a common understanding of communication and conflict intervention from the transformative approach.

  • Living the transformative approach in our work together.  Using this approach in how we show up, engage, and deal with differences within the ISCT and with external partners or collaborations

  • Safeguarding the integrity of the transformative approach by supporting certification of mediators, participating on the ethics committee and promoting practice in ways consistent with the Transformative approach

  • Contributing substantial time to help develop the Institute as a viable enterprise,  including but not limited to developing materials & training, conducting research, doing outreach to generate opportunities for the Institute’s work, writing, raising funds, and serving on the Board.

Consider Becoming a Fellow 

  • Are you an active transformative practitioner, committed to the growth of this framework?  

  • Are you proud of the unique strengths of the transformative framework:  a model rooted in theory with clear and articulated values that drives our practice across a variety of arenas?

  • Are you working in your local community and beyond to help others appreciate the power and the usefulness of our understanding of conflict? 

  • Are you willing to actively support the Institute as it works internationally to study and promote the understanding of conflict processes and intervention from the transformative framework? 

Fellows are individuals who are deeply engaged with the knowledge, theory and practice of the transformative approach.  They practice in one or more ways: mediating, facilitating dialogues, coaching, training, mentoring, doing research and writing.  They participate in shaping the future of the Institute, doing all that they can to ensure its on-going health.  They work collaboratively with other Fellows as well as participate actively on the Institute’s board, committees and/or working groups.
