Welcome! To be a teacher or therapist in today’s environment is more challenging than ever before.  More discipline problems, more special needs students, more student diversity, more time pressures – more of everything.  Today’s practitioner needs a new solution, one that offers better tools to effect meaningful change.

Fifty years ago, and fifty years ahead of his time, Professor Reuven Feuerstein made the radical claim that everyone, no matter what their situation or disability, can change – and change dramatically.  More than any other cognitive program, the Feuerstein method has withstood the test of time.  For half a century, tens of thousands of children from all over the world and from every walk of life have undergone dramatic transformations in their learning potential through the Feuerstein method.


The Feuerstein approach is rooted in Professor Feuerstein’s unique theory of Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM) and the implementation of Mediated Learning Experience (MLE), a powerful combination that provides the framework for the practitioner to help the child unlock his or her often-hidden potential.


The ICELP International Workshops introduce educators, psychologists and other specialists to the theory and hands-on practice of Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM) and Mediated Learning Experience, as well as the use of dynamic assessment (assessing a child’s ultimate potential rather than his/her mere current ability) and Instrumental Enrichment intervention.

Practitioners will learn with the world’s leading specialists of the Feuerstein method.  They will leave the workshops with concrete knowledge of these methods and the ability to use them with confidence to help their student or clients.  They will benefit from the experience acquired through the decades of clinical work and educational observation that has shown us the exact nature and quality of the interaction between the child and the practitioner that brings about the most meaningful change.

ICELP annual workshops have been providing exceptional training for more than a quarter-century.  This year’s annual workshop will enable you to follow in the footsteps of practitioners from dozens of countries who are now seeing transformative changes in the children they help.

This year the workshops are hosted by the University Babes-Bolyai in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The University Babes-Bolyai is the biggest public university in Romania with 50,000 students in various undergraduate and graduate programs, including Education and Psychology. This is a truly multicultural university with the majority of courses taught in Romanian, Hungarian and German. The Pro-rector of the university Professor Dr. Stefan Szamoskozi is a dedicated supporter of the Feuerstein approach; for many years he has promoted this approach in his university and in Romania in general. The workshops will take place in a modern instructional building a short walk from the University Hotel and Student Dormitories. Meals will be served in the dining room near the instructional building. Cluj-Napoca has an international airport with direct flights from London, Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Madrid, Budapest, Bucharest and some other European cities.
