Common Bond Institute

COMMON BOND INSTITUTE (CBI) is a Non-Government Organization that focuses on increasing skills and services locally to promote social healing and conflict transformation globally, exploring human consciousness and relationship dynamics, and expanding public awareness, dialogue, and collaborative action to address critical issues.

It does this through providing local capacity building skills training in human services and civil society essential to healing and recovery, demonstrating models of direct community-based health care services to vulnerable populations impacted by war, violence, and catastrophe, conducting working conferences to address fundamental issues related to the roots of conflict, violence, and communal trauma, and conducting related research to advance a shared global understanding of the dynamics of communal and transgenerational trauma in fueling hostility and conflict.

Since 1990 CBI has organized over 50 international professional conferences and conducted numerous training and treatment programs in various regions, primarily in developing societies experiencing turmoil that are in regions of conflict and where the human service system is either under developed or severely compromised by catastrophic conditions.

It provides networking, consulting, and coordination support to assist newly emerging human service and civil society organizations, and to like-purposed NGOs.

CBI is dedicated to a model of strategic collaboration with like purposed organizations to better address psycho-social issues, conflict, and suffering in the global community.
