Founded in 1973, the International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes (IAGP) is a worldwide network of professionals involved in the development of group psychotherapy and group processes in the areas of theory, clinical practice, training, education research and consultancy. Our network provides opportunities for meeting the others: professions, theories and cultures – who are exploring the applications of small, median and large group processes in clinical, organizational and political settings. These meetings have great potential for furthering international cooperation on training, research, clinical work and consultancy in a multicultural society.
