We invite you to submit your proposals and thus contribute to the success of the 8th World Congress for Psychotherapy of the World Council for Psychotherapy (WCP), which will be a gathering point for psychotherapists and other experts who, in their respective ways, care for the quality of living of individuals, couples, families and groups.


The French Federation for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (FF2P) and its partners, the French League of Mental Health and the Minkowska Center, have the great honor of organizing the world congress of the World Council for Psychotherapy. Hosting this event in the exceptional framework of this century of globalization brings into discussion psychotherapeutic practices, their theoretical foundations and the converging point of psychotherapy with different anthropological, sociological, epistemological, and ethical representations.


Sharing and exchanging both our hopes and our practices is the goal of this congress.
