A word from the President / Le mot de la Présidente
Dear EFTA Colleagues, I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to the 9th EFTA Newsletter. This edition of our Newsletter brings information from the 7th EFTA Congress, held in the city of light – Paris, France, in cooperation with the French Association of Family Therapy. Over 2000 colleagues attended this Congress where they had the opportunity to meet and exchange with each other on a scientific and personal level. We hope that the material presented in this newsletter may serve as a taste of this stimulating learning experience for those who could not join us in Paris and as a reminder for those of us who participated. This newsletter also introduces the members of the new General Board of EFTA, elected during the Paris Congress. As EFTA’s newly elected President, I will put my efforts into promoting systems science and practice throughout Europe and to interconnecting EFTA with other family therapy organizations in other parts of the globe.
