Welcome to the IAFP.
The IAFP is an organization dedicated to promoting academic research in family psychology internationally, primarily among family psychology researchers and practitioners who support families. The organization was founded in the late 1980s by family researchers from around the world interested in systems theory-based psychology.
Today, novel coronas, disasters, conflict (violence), poverty, and sexual diversity affect the family, and the family is becoming increasingly diverse. Some trends are global, others local. We want to understand what is known about global and local trends and explore the psychological aspects of the family in a diverse human society.
Furthermore, we will continue to make efforts to make the very attractive field of family psychology known to as many people as possible.
