The Integrative Client Counseling Institute (ICCI) is dedicated to improving lawyering, and the legal process, by helping professionals to understand and apply state of the art science and theory on human functioning in conflict, and to identify and develop models, tools, and techniques to help legal professionals better manage conflict. ICCI works to enhance professional skills in counseling, negotiation, mediation, and litigation (including case development, questioning and cross-examination). ICCI accesses science and theory generally from the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, and specifically from fields such as neuroscience, relationship, attachment, communication, emotion, motivation, and education.
ICCI promotes the Integrative Client-Centered Model (ICCM) for legal client counseling, and provides written materials and training in a variety of formats. The ICCM includes the Conflict Model, a functional working psychological model of human behavior in conflict which can promote improved counseling, interviewing, negotiating, and cross-examining skills. It also includes relationship enhancing tools, motivational tools, and a functional ethical perspective. The ICCM provides a foundation for not only counseling, but for all of the other professional skills needed to help people in conflict.
ICCI offers a variety of training programs and professional services.
