Conference of the International Federation for Psychotherapy

Welcome from the IFP president Paul EMMELKAMP

I am delighted to welcome you to Marrakesh for the Conference of the International Federation for Psychotherapy (IFP) on ‘The Universal and the Cultural in Psychotherapy’.

Marrakesh is the perfect location to host the Conference given its cultural diversity which is reflected through many aspects of Moroccan life, namely the diverse cultures, languages, music, the clothing, and the cuisine. Alongside the stimulating practice-science dialogue on culture and psychotherapy to be delivered in the Conference programme, the lively atmosphere of this historic city centre is sure to be remembered for many years.

Regardless of our therapeutic schools of thoughts, we all have to be aware of a variety of cultural backgrounds of our patients. This conference will enrich the awareness of cultural diversity in our patients and we will discuss how to adjust our psychotherapies to optimally help patients with a variety of cultural backgrounds.

The conference will feature keynote addresses, a variety of presentations, symposia, workshops, panel discussions, small groups, as well as social related activities. We hope you will submit a proposal for a presentation, symposium, workshop, or a round table discussion and in doing so share your thoughts and research on the theme of ‘The Universal and the Cultural in Psychotherapy’. Please see the web site for more detailed information. We dream of a conference which will have a fruitful space for discussion on this important theme. We are looking forward to meet professionals and people interested in the fascinating field of psychotherapy from all over the world. The success of the International Federation for Psychotherapy depends on our dedicated members, and to those of you who join us for our Conference. I look forward to seeing you all at the Conference in Marrakesh.
