Sections

The IAGP has special interest sections in family therapy, group analytic group work, psychodrama, organizational consultancy and transcultural issues and young professionals. Members may belong to several sections. This page provides basic information about the Sections, with links to further details and services.

The IAGP also has committees including the Trauma and Disaster Management committee and the Education committee.

Family therapy section

The Family Therapy Section aims to provide a platform for practitioners, regardless of their experience level and those interested in the field. It serves as a space for sharing experiences, seeking mutual support, and learning from various approaches such as psychodrama, sociometry, systems models, Jungian, analytical, narrative therapy, and art therapy. It addresses specific topics within families, including addictions, trauma, grief and loss, separation – divorce, displacement, domestic violence, cultural-religious tensions, migration (refugees and exile), self-harm, and family education.
Our section organises regular meetings for open discussions and conducts webinars on specific subjects. We are open to suggestions from our members and society to ensure the section remains relevant.

Psychodrama section

The Psychodrama Section aspires to cooperate with other IAGP Sections and disseminate information about psychodrama and related areas. Our aim is to serve as an international professional-scientific forum dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and ideas and the advancement of psychodrama, and to organize workshops and presentations at IAGP congresses. We encourage new ideas and the development of new lines of communication. Our aim is to build intercultural bridges.

Young Professionals’ section
This section has been officially established in September 2013. Aim of the section is to create
a space for young professionals to meet, to think and to produce together for IAGP. The
section collaborates with other sections and creates projects, webinars, workshops,
fundraising events and invites all young professionals to join in these events. IAGP values and
supports young professionals and calls them to become a part of the association, to share
about their research and case studies in our discussion list and to participate and present their
works in the regional and international conferences.
