25 Year Anniversary of IFTA
The International Family Therapy Association was an outgrowth of the East-West Bridging Congress conducted in Budapest 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.
