What IICT believes in
At IICT, everything we do and believe in is about challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking differently about membership and truly serving our members based on what they need over what we assume their needs might be.
Unlike many associations who dictate what therapists must do, we innovate and create services and provide resources based on what our members actually need. We reverse engineer membership starting with ‘why’ rather than focusing on ‘what’ we do.
Because we operate outside the structure of associations, we are truly responsive to industry needs and use that flexibility to deliver outstanding products to our members.
We’re about community and collaboration as a starting point and that makes us unique from the outset.
IICT is the best fit for therapists who offer many modalities without the need of joining associations for each modality practiced. IICT is also the largest modality list in all the world
(1,200+ and counting), you can be sure that if you practice it, we cover it.
