The Tunisia conference will open its gates to practise our solidarity as professionals and human beings. Passing through the painted doors and windows of Tunesia will link the energy of one of the oldest cultures of the Mediterranean region and the African continent to the present moment we share. As for Antalya, Brazil and Japan's IAGP conferences, we trust the 7th regional congress in Tunisia will become an exceptional meeting to spread humanity and expertise of group psychotherapy and group processes to remedy the pain of our patients, ourselves, and our societies at large.

An overview of the engagement of IAGP in Africa from the past to the present moment.
