Otto Laske Interdevelopmental Institute (IDM)
Creating Collaborative Intelligence

IDM Services

Work at the Interdevelopmental Institute is evidence-based throughout, deriving from adult-developmental research since 1975. Our practice is informed by the synthesis of developmental and dialectical thinking as accomplished in Otto Laske’s Constructive Developmental Framework (CDF).

To increase our work’s critical realism, since 2020 we have embedded it in R. Bhaskar’s and M. Archer’s Social Ontology, thereby interpreting CDF as a theory of human agency operating in four dimensions: social-emotional, cognitive, psychological, and spiritual. We stay open to new developments in social science and philosophy.

Our work largely consists of mentoring professionals of all stripes through supervised practice. The work we do and foster is multi-disciplinary and has a broad agenda: (1) The Practice of Dialectical Thinking, (2) Evidence-Based Developmental Coaching, (3) Cognitive Team Facilitation (aiming for dynamic collaboration), and (4) Case Study Guidance.

Each of these practices is offered at a beginner’s and advanced level, in workshops comprising up to 10 participants forming a cohort and working as a team over 30 hours in the form of 20 Zoom sessions. Alternative arrangements are possible.

All work done at IDM is graduate work; it presupposes the self-study of ‘Gateway’, a pdf collection of teaching materials found at https://interdevelopmentals.org/publications/, Sections B1 (English) and B2.

Beginners’ work is focused on a first CDF case study through which to learn structured interviewing and text analysis techniques, while advanced work focuses on strengthening professional CDF practice by completing two further case studies.

Those who have completed a first case study are eligible for working toward an IDM Certificate of Developmental Coaching (both of individuals and teams), while those who have completed three case studies are eligible for studying toward becoming a Professional CDF Trainer who works independently under an IDM license.

Instruction is given internationally, in English, throughout the year. Workshops in German are an option. Feedback is given in English, German, Dutch, and French.
