Membership in international professional organisations


1. International Association of Group Psychotherapy (IAGP) seit 1980.

IAGP is a truly lobal organisation of Group-Psychotherapists. A specific characteristic of IAGP is that underneath its umbrella coexist grouptherapists of different Schools (psychoanalytically oriented, Psychodrama, Gestalt, Therapeutic Community). They work fruitfully together and meet every three years at a large international Congress. In turn it takes place in all the continents of our world and a very lively and profound exchange of clinical experience and creative ideas is achieved.

2. Association of Therapeutic Communities (ATC)

The annual international conferences in Windsor (nerby London) are intellecual and personal highlights. Limited to about 60 participants this conference offers a very intensive opportunity for exchange of ideas, clinical practise and the frank discussion of new approaches.

The ATC has its roots in the work of Maxwel Jones (one of its founders), Tom Main, Bion, Harold Bridger and other pioneers in the work with therapeutic communities. ATC publishes its own international Journal.

3.International Society for the Psychotherapy of Schizophrenia (ISPS).

This association was founded by Gaetano Benedetti, a Suisse pioneer of the psychotherapy of Psychosis. It conducts International Symposia every three years on the psychological and more specifically psychoanalytic treatment of the schizophrenias and of psychosis. It is the international forum in this field where the possibilities of psychotherapy are dicussed, research is presented and new therapeutic ways are explored..
