EFPP - Membres

Membership in the EFPP is open to all European countries. Exceptionally a country situated outside the European borders may be accepted if its application for membership has been accepted by the Executive Committee and is ratified by a 2/3 majority of the voting delegates at a General Meeting.

EFPP consists of four sections working with psychoanalytic psychotherapy for: Adults, Children and Adolescents, Groups, and Couple and Familiy Psychotherapy (PCFP). The Couple and Family section was established at the delegates biannual meeting in Kortenberg in 2009, and inaugurated with its first conference held in Florence in May of the same year.

Currently 26 countries in Europe are full members of the EFPP. There are additionally 4 countries who are associate members and two are observers.
