I-System Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies | Home of Mind-Body Bridging and Productive Mind

 

In 2018, Stanley H. Block, MD, together with his wife, Carolyn Bryant Block provided Utah State University with a generous gift that led to the founding of the I-System Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies within the Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, for the purpose of providing a public service to USU students and to larger communities and social units through the broadest outreach of education, training, and research using the I-System Model. 

The I-System Model, which provides the foundation for both Mind-Body Bridging and Productive Mind, was developed by the Blocks in the late 1990s to optimize heath, wellness, and human performance. The I-System Model presents a view of individual and collective psychosocial human functioning and embraces a holistic approach to healing and wellness. 

USU is thrilled to host the I-System Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies, Home of Mind-Body Bridging and Productive Mind.
