About Us

Welcome to International ISC

ISC was founded in 2005 by Alessandro Carmelita and Valeria Idini, who aimed to offer highly qualified training services in the fields of psychotherapy and neuroscience. Their goal was meeting therapists’ need to constantly update their knowledge of the most advanced and efficient therapies from a scientific point of view.

The workshops, trainings and conferences that ISC organizes every year are attended by some of the most leading experts in the fields of Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy and Mindfulness, just to name a few. Additionally, the company is increasingly focusing on relational-based and, more specifically, attachment-based therapeutic approaches.

By encouraging the creation of new partnerships with influential experts at the international level (such as Sue Johnson, Daniel Siegel, Pat Ogden and many others), ISC has been able to organize several training courses, such as the International Training in Schema Therapy and the EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) Training Program, as well as a multitude of workshops, always focused on different and specific topics, like neurobiology or trauma treatment.

As far as conferences are concerned, ISC organized – for the very first time – the “Attachment and Trauma” Congress in 2014, in Rome. Since then, this important event has always made a significant contribution to the learning process of hundreds of therapists from all over the world. Over the years, the attendance rate has been growing steadily, by reaching the record number of 1,250 participants coming from 42 different nations in 2016. In 2017, on May 12th-14th, the “Attachment and Trauma” Congress was also held in London, with an overall attendance of 1,200 participants coming from 36 different countries around the world. Its success was impressive: some of the most leading personalities in the UK in the field of psychotherapy defined it as “the most important event ever organized in the country in this specific sector”.

Thus, as ISC is becoming more and more international, a key change has been made to the company’s identity: its brand-new name, ISC International, better identifies the company’s ambitious project to gradually extend its activities abroad. With an increasingly high standing, the company has a number of conferences in the pipeline, taking place in Japan, USA, South America and Europe (Italy, Greece, and many other countries).

Today, thanks to the passion and dedication of its founders, Alessandro Carmelita and Valeria Idini, as well as their business partner, Laura Beccia – sharing the same belief that life-long learning and new experiences allow each human being to make significant changes, both inside and outside themselves – ISC International keeps committing to offering high-quality training services to therapists and mental health professionals all over the world.
