Discover The Institute

The Institute for Identity Development was established in 2017 to bring ID sessions to the United States. ID sessions are derived from the clinical and theoretical work of Professor Dr. Franz Ruppert, Marta Thorsheim and the earlier work of Bert Hellinger.

The Mission

To support mental health in all areas of life by better understanding the continuing clinical, research and theoretical discoveries in human identity development.

The Vision

To provide training and outreach to healthcare professionals and the general public, through research, content development, media outreach and delivery of group workshops, training and individual tutorials.

ID sessions are not therapy, nor a substitute for therapy. Like yoga or meditation, ID sessions enhance any therapy, spritual/religious practice or cultural orientation by recovering all of you.
