Promoting systemic thinking, and therapeutic and relationship-based approaches in Social Work

News from IAGP

International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes (IAGP) have announced an offer which may be of interest to GAPS members and wider audience working, studying or training in Group Psychotherapy and Group Process:

Membership for a limited one-year free trial of IAGP is now available. (Check the Join Foyt buttons at )

The one-year free membership programme of IAGP aims to invite group professionals, Affiliates’ individual members and young professionals to join on a trial basis without cost. It is not available to past and present members of IAGP. 

During their first year of membership, the programme will offer FOYT members the experience of being a member of IAGP and allow them to take part in intervision groups, regional group discussions, webinars, training opportunities, and receive copies of Globeletter magazine and Forum publications. Discounted fees to attend the 2022 Congress in Pescara will also be offered, alongside the usual discounts that apply to members. Soon an announcement on the new Congress website and early bird discounts will be out, so please stay tuned!

Orientation will be provided so that new FOYT members will become active citizens of the IAGP community. 

It would be very helpful to new members if the web profile of each current member was updated and, in that way, becomes available to the entire membership of IAGP. 

It is hoped that full membership will be taken up by FOYT members after the twelve months trial period.

Again, to join Foyt, just go to the homepage of and click on one of the Join Foyt buttons.
