XXIII World Family Therapy Congress Technology, Families and Effective Therapy
Changing Traditions and Systemic Therapy:
Dangers and Opportunities for Families
The 23rd World Family Therapy Congress will be held 11 – 14 March 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We invite you to join colleagues from around the world at the Congress Hotel, the JW Marriott, a five-star hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
The 2015 Congress has as its theme, Changing Traditions and Systemic Therapy: Dangers and Opportunities for Families. The Congress will focus on how generational, cultural, religious, and political changes impact families, and, as a result, families can respond to these changes as opportunities for growth. The 2015 Congress will feature many approaches to a variety of problems and ways of coping with them. The congress aims to help heal hurting couples and families in various cultures.
The International Family Therapy Association was an outgrowth of the East-West Bridging Congress conducted in Prague in 1987. Since that time, IFTA’s goal has been the same: Advancing family therapy worldwide by promoting research, education, and sound practice while promoting international cooperation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas that support the health and well-being of families and persons around the world.

The Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy Model (STST) is unique in encompassing both the intrapsychic and interactive components of therapy. Much therapy of the past has been focused only on clients’ behaviour, cognition or affect. This model is focused on bringing about change at the level of Being, as well as changes in doing, feeling and perceiving. The process taps the universal yearnings of individuals within their personal family and social systems and helps them work towards a sense of responsible wholeness. The process requires that the therapist has a high level of therapeutic competence and congruence.

The focus of the program is to improve participants’ competence, congruence and confidence in doing transformational, experiential, systemic change therapy. The course leader will utilize lecturettes, small group discussions, structured exercises, demonstrations, experiential learning and skill practice sessions to assist participants to move their therapy into a positively directional, change focused, experiential process. The emphasis will be on bringing about transformational change in individual therapy, couples therapy and family therapy. As well, some attention will be given to working with specific symptoms in therapy. Participants will work in triads for a minimum of 3 hours between sessions to practice different aspects of the program. As in the STST Level I training program, participants will use their own process of personal growth as the arena for their learning.
