The 2021 Virtual IFTA World Family Therapy Congress will begin March 26, 2021 and will remain open for viewing for a number of weeks. We invite you to join colleagues from around the world for this Virtual Congress.

The 2021 Congress will celebrate the evolution of family therapy around the world. The Congress will focus on interactional methodologies for working with families and how those changes impact the families with which therapists work. The 2021 Congress, like all IFTA Congresses, will also 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.
