Welcome to the 15th Systems-Centered Annual Conference!

Differences as Resources for Change and Creativity

We are very pleased to welcome you to a unique opportunity for all of us working in organizations, in education, as therapists, or for those who are curious about SCT to meet and learn together in the heart of San Francisco, CA, USA.

Systems-Centered Training (SCT) offers leading edge methods for organizational development, education and therapy with groups, individuals and couples.  The weekend Institute and 5-day Conference offer a wide range of training groups, interactive workshops and a large group experience. 

Attendees will learn to:

  • Discriminate and integrate differences as a way to solve conflicts and fuel innovations
  • Reduce restraining forces to change which frees energy and stimulates curiosity
    and creativity
  • Shift from a focus on the self to a systems-centered perspective
  • Take up one’s role, with heart, in our different systems with an understanding of the phase of development


Conference 2014 will focus on discovering how differences can be enormous resources for change and creativity.  Our goal is that your conference experience will increase your capacity to value and integrate differences in the human systems in which you participate.
