European Passport Programme

EFTA-CIM has provided for a number of years a programme called: the European Family Therapy Passport. This passport is given to every new member. Juan Luis Linares took the initiative for this passport and explains the philosophy behind it.

For some years now we have heard speak of the importance of constructing a new Europe and of creating European networks. And for a number of years we have been involved in university programmes such as Erasmus, Leonardo or Socrates, which encourage the emergence of a European academic presence.

By the means of this family therapy passport, which is intended to encourage exchanges between student family therapists and their trainers in different European countries, EFTA wants to contribute in an important way to the establishment of a European psychotherapeutic presence.

What we foresee and hope is not only the improvement of the professional training of European therapists, but also the consolidation of different approaches and the development of European styles of systemic practice which integrate well with our historic and cultural identities.

We hope that in time similar experiments will see the light of day with other models of psychotherapy, thereby contributing to the spreading of a common psychotherapeutic thread across Europe.
