The ICA wants to contribute to the further development and dissemination of the contextual approach. We focus on the application of contextual thinking in therapy and social work. But we also try to find useful applications of the contextual principles in nursing, education, counseling, etc.
The ICA offers trainingcourses Contextual Therapy and several other courses and trainingprograms concerning topics on contextual thinking, familytherapy and social work.
In collaboration with the Lectureship Youth and Family we do research into the principles and efficacy of the contextual approach. That keeps our trainingprograms accurate and up to date. But our researchprograms also focus on further development in the direction of a useful methodology and application in different care practices, such as nursing, teaching and pastoral care.
ICA is part of Transfer Social Studies of the Christian University for Applied Studies. Currently about 25 teachers, trainers, supervisors, researchers and developers are involved in the ICA, ranging from contextual therapists, familytherapists and psychologists to psychiatrists and other professionals whith a particular specialty.
