Systems-Centered® Therapy (SCT®)

Systems-Centered Therapy, an innovative method of change, is designed to free individuals, couples, groups and organizations to "get there from here". Learning SCT techniques frees people to recognize unproductive, energy-draining patterns of thinking and acting, undo them, and connect the freed-up energy to their goals. a primary Systems-Centered skill, not taking the world personally, reduces conflict and fosters a goal-oriented climate in oneself and with others.
