Crossroads of Clinical Practice and Research
Trondheim, Norway, 14-18 Aug. 2002
The IFP organizes international congresses and conferences on psychotherapy, organized by member societies in cooperation with other international and national organizations on psychotherapy.
World Congresses on Psychotherapy will be held every 4 years, Regional Congresses, organized by the Chapters, will be held every 4 years between the world congresses. There is a list over past world congresses organized by IFP
Historically, todays IFP evolved from the International General Medical Society for Psychotherapy (IGMSP) established in 1935 and then re-established as the International Federation for Medical Psychotherapy (IFMP) in 1954. The original objective of the federation was to promote psychotherapy within the field of medicine. However, in the mean time psychotherapy has come to include a wide field of professions both scientifically and in practice. Correspondingly, the objectives of the IFP have been extended and in 1991 the federation was renamed International Federation for Psychotherapy (IFP).
Please look at the IFP website for more information.
The city of Trondheim was founded in the year 997 by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason, and became the center of power and the first capital of Norway. Trondheim is today the oldest and the third largest city in Norway with approximately 150,000 residents. 25,000 students makes Trondheim the second largest city of education in Norway.
Trondheim is also a modern, hi-tech city. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is at the heart of a research milieu that ranks among Europe's foremost centres of technology. The newly organized university, with its roots back to 1760, covers general university faculties like humanistic, natural sciences, social sciences, and medicine, but also has a heavy weight on technology and science. NTNU is a natural anchor in the "Technological Capital of Norway".
More information about NTNU and Trondheim (including accommodation) is available.
