Inclusive And Celebrating Diversity
The aim is to create a European psychosynthesis community open to therapists and coaches alike, as well as people who use psychosynthesis in education, business or art. Membership is open to those who have completed a minimum of one academic year of psychosynthesis training. Those with less than one year or have a different route into psychosynthesis are invited to share this in the application form.
Respect, Support And Collaboration
We work in different fields and in various ways and we meet to learn from each other so that we can be of greater benefit to the whole, our clients and ourselves. We each contribute to all that our vibrant, expansive, and inclusive tradition can be.
History Of The EPA & Links To The EFPP
The EPA is a new organisation which has grown out of the European Federation for Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy (EFPP). Although the EFPP has organised summer schools and meetings, its focus has been mainly on psychotherapy. It was felt that an organisation representing a wider range of practitioners was needed in order to be more inclusive of the psychosynthesis community. The EFPP has been in existence since 1997 and continues to flourish in parallel to the EPA.
Questions & Answers
What type of organisation is this?
The EPA has now been legally registered as a voluntary non-profit association under Dutch law. It has a basic structure with an elected board consisting of six members situated throughout Europe. The basic structure has been set up according to a standard format for Dutch associations to begin with.
For administrative reasons the EFPP is moving its base from Italy to the Netherlands. The Board of EFPP felt this was an excellent moment to create a parallel organisation at the same time.
How is the EPA financed?
Initial ‘start up’ funding was given by the EFPP to pay for such things as legal fees and expenses for the first few months. From 2022, the EPA will be financed from membership fees, with a not-for-profit attitude, being a voluntary association.
