Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Research Publications

Our international community of faculty and graduates is engaged in constantly refining theory and practice through academic and workplace research and publication. The constantly accelerating pace of change in the world requires ongoing development of new applications and as a nonprofit community of experts we are committed to a breadth of thinking, rather than limited by the approach of just one individual or corporation.

Because our faculty is working out in the world and is not an academic faculty, we don't require them to research or publish. However, we do feature the books of our faculty authors in our GISC bookstore reflecting their research and applications. Books by these accomplished writers can be purchased on-site at GISC, here in our eBookstore, as well as from your favorite bookseller.


Intentional Revolution by Edwin C. Nevis, Joan Lancourt, and Helen G. Vassallos - A Seven Point Strategy for Transforming Organizations

Ground of Your Own Choosing by Beverly Ryle - Winning Strategies for Finding and Creating Work


We publish an academic journal, Gestalt Review, reflecting a wide variety of organizational and clinical research and application from our international community. Gestalt Review is published three times a year.


Our newsletter is a collection of brief articles on the effective application of our training by a broad spectrum of users in a range of settings. Depending on the issue you might find a perspective by a bank president, community social worker, or consultant to new governments. The newsletter also features book reviews, interviews, and Center news.


GISC faculty are available for presentations on a variety of topics. Call the office for more information.

“I have taken a lot of courses that have filled my head with a lot of wonderful ideas. Over time my recollection wanes and the course impact diminishes. Not so with GISC. The program I participated in at the Center has changed me. I am a different and better person. I am more effective at what I do and I have greater impact on the people around me. Because of the experiential nature, I cannot forget this program, it has become part of who I am.”
