IAGP Statement for Peace
Dear IAGP Community,

It is with profound sadness that we are witnessing the escalation of violence through terrorist attacks. Many other regions around the world are suffering the consequences of violence, compromising mental and social health on a global scale.

Our community has been offering support in various forms to all those in suffering. We extend our gratitude to all our dedicated colleagues who volunteer their time and expertise to work in the realm of mental and social health. Group interventions provide a multifaceted framework for supporting all those under the impact of difficult times, and together, we aspire to collaborate in the pursuit of mental and social health and well-being, ultimately contributing to the enhancement of peace in the world.

IAGP is committed to the international development of group interventions in various domains, including clinical practice, consultancy, education, research, and socio-cultural contexts. May our knowledge and practices find ground in all corners of the world to provide support, training, and different modalities of group interventions, strengthening egalitarian and democratic advancements in social welfare and healthcare on a global scale.

As IAGP, we’ll continue to find constructive dynamics and dialogue towards collaboration and peace.

Heloisa Fleury,
IAGP President
