Castellabate (Southern Italy): The location of our Italy Programme
The Pellin institute offers professional training and
personal self development programs in Contribution Training (CT) in the United
Kingdom, southern Italy and north America.
The programs range from short focussed workshops to longer
residential programs and one to five year part time professional training
programs in counselling and psychotherapy. Pellin practitioners work with
individuals, couples, families, groups and organisations.
CT was developed by Peter Fleming, the founder of Pellin. CT
is a humanistic and integrative approach. CT integrates the ideas of major
figures such as Viktor Frankl and Fritz Perls with the depth and practicality of
the self help ethos of such organisations as Alcoholics Anonymous and political
Peter named the Pellin Institute after his friend and teacher
David Pellin who died in 1971. The work of CT had begun in Vancouver, Canada in
the socially volatile late 1960s when Peter and David worked with disadvantaged
young people and their families.
The Pellin Institute Mission Statement, devised by Peter Fleming, is:
“The best way to heal is to contribute.
The best way to learn is to teach”
