IAGP welcomes individual members and affiliate organizations from all countries

The IAGP thrives and evolves through the active participation of its international members. Membership applications are welcomed from both individuals and organizations. Individual members receive Forum (our annual publication), Globeletter (our newsletter), our membership directory and reduced registration fees at IAGP sponsored and affiliated congresses. Organizational affiliates (For list, please click here) become members of our Consultative Assembly of Organizational affiliates (CAOA), and are closely involved in IAGP planning and decision-making via representation at Board meetings and in our CAOA online discussion forum. Join IAGP or renew/reactivate your membership.

We offer annual billing. Join now and have all the benefits! You can find information about membership and the links to join or renew. Please check the country bands below for the correct membership discount.


Who can join?

Membership is open to trained group psychotherapists, consultants and group leaders who are sponsored by a member who is familiar with their work with groups. Special membership fees are available for retired professionals and students. Students’ membership are welcome from students enrolled in institutional training programs or university studies in group psychotherapy or group processes.


Individual members have free access to all the IAGP material, including recorded materials of Webinars and other IAGP activities. They have also reduced rates in our congresses and sponsored conferences, and free access to Webinars and Online Symposiums. We have also an annual publication (Forum) where all members can publish peer-reviewed articles, and Globeletter (our newsletter). There are also discussion forums and intervision online groups for members only.


Fees are now payable annually. Payment of dues entitles the member to all privileges of membership, or for life in the case of life membership.

Who can join?

Organizational affiliates become members of the Consultative Assembly of Organizational Affiliates (CAOA). Through the Chairperson of the CAOA, who is a Board member, affiliate concerns are represented at IAGP Board meetings. Affiliates are invited to send a representative to CAOA meetings and to participate in the CAOA online discussion forum. Please contact our CAOA Chair: Magdalene Jeyarathnam [email protected] if your organization is not yet represented on our online discussion list. Organizational affiliates receive a copy (one per organization) of IAGP publications, and their organization is listed in our website and in the membership directory. For a list of our affiliate organizations, please click here.

NB: Members of IAGP’s affiliate organisations, including their IAGP representative, do not automatically become individual IAGP members. They are strongly recommended to also take out individual IAGP membership (separate payment required), so that they can join sections and obtain other benefits of individual IAGP membership.


Fees for organizational affiliates are calculated pro rata based on membership numbers and geographic location of the organization. The IAGP has adopted the World Bank’s rating of country income. Dues for affiliate organizations for 2022-2023 are as follows
