The 23rd World Family Therapy Congress will be held 11 - 14 March 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We invite you to join colleagues from around the world at the Congress Hotel, the JW Marriott, a five-star hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

The 2015 Congress has as its theme, Changing Traditions and Systemic Therapy: Dangers and Opportunities for Families. The Congress will focus on how generational, cultural, religious, and political changes impact families, and, as a result, families can respond to these changes as opportunities for growth. The 2015 Congress will feature many approaches to a variety of problems and ways of coping with them. The congress aims to help heal hurting couples and families in various cultures.

The International Family Therapy Association was an outgrowth of the East-West Bridging Congress conducted in Prague in 1987. Since that time, IFTA’s goal has been the same: Advancing family therapy worldwide by promoting research, education, and sound practice while promoting international cooperation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas that support the health and well-being of families and persons around the world.
