About ICGC

Mission

As scholars, writers, clinicians, educators and activists, we promote Relational-Cultural Theory, an established body of scholarship that honors human connection as the anchor of all personal and social change, and enhances the capacity for healthy human development.

Vision

We envision a world in which the dominant value of hyper-individualism—leading to fear and isolation—is replaced by the widespread recognition that true progress lies in the power of our connections to one another and our environment.
