The Feurstein Method

Feuerstein's theory of Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM) states that "all human characteristics including personality, cognition, and behavior are modifiable" regardless of "etiology, age, or severity of condition" (Feuerstein & Rand, 1990). Structural Cognitive Modifiability isn't just about teaching the use of tools and skills, it is about modifying the cognitive structure.  It is the modification and diversification that affects, and ultimately improves, someone's ability to learn and adapt to complex situations.  The theory further states that by choosing to work with people in a way that develops the flexibility and changing of mind creates more stable and enduring change than working at the behavioral level (Feuerstein et. all, 1991).


The Israeli psychologist Reuven Feuerstein developed a hugely successful programme of great complexity called Instrumental Enrichment, which requires special training for a therapist, a teacher or other professionals to use.


Thinking Connections Counselling & Psychotherapy Services has been working in partnership with the Feuerstein Association-Open Your Mind from Romania and Otilia Todor Centrul Tău de Dezvoltare Personală from Brasov towards validating and promoting the Feuerstein Method in the UK and Europe.  


A key characteristic of our collaboration was to help facilitate the mobility of Feuerstein mediators so that they would meet the national standards and qualify for the professional liability insurance in the UK.
