Charles Rojzman, a renowned French social psychologist, author, and international consultant, invented Transformational Social Therapy twenty years ago as a method for transforming institutions by helping people address the hatred and violence that separate them and prevent them from working together. Rojzman has been introducing professionals in the Philadelphia region to Transformational Social Therapy through the GCDL at Temple since 2009.
