Sad News: Petros Polychronis passed away
It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform the members of the European Systemic and Family Therapy Community that the Director of the Athenian Institute of Anthropos, Dr. Petros Polychronis, has passed away.
Petros Polychronis, as Director, Teacher and Therapist but also as a unique human being, served and lived by – till the end of his life – his personal human values and beliefs with exemplary consistency as well as those of his mentors and founders of “Anthropos”, George and Vasso Vassiliou, while also taking care to open space and listen to all voices emerging in the Anthropos community process and foster the co-development of novelty in the practice of a systemic view of life.
All these years, Petros nurtured the coleader ship of the Anthropos Scientific Team by cultivating collaboration and co-evolution. His vision of creating a multinuclear scientific network with old and new colleagues and friends connected to Anthropos was of the utmost value to him – a process to which we are dedicated to continue to strive towards.
Petros’ funeral service will be held on Monday, November 15th, at 1pm in the cemetery of Vyronas(Athens).
We express our sincere condolences to his beloved partner Kyriaki and daughters, Katerina and Panayiota.
On behalf of Petros’ life-long colleagues and friends of the Scientific Advisory Team of “Anthropos”,
