THE INSTITUTE FOR COUPLE AND FAMILY STUDIES
The OPCCF created the Institute for Couple and Family Studies (IECF) in 1989. Its objective is to offer professionals in the field of counselling in French-speaking Switzerland and neighbouring France a continuing education programme in the field of intervention and therapy with couples and families.
IECF training courses are intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, other doctors, lawyers, mediators, health professionals, social workers, pastors, etc.
The IECF offers a programme of training courses, seminars, personal development workshops and conferences, mainly based on the systemic approach.
It also offers individual and team supervision.
The IECF collaborates with the Geneva Association for Family Therapy (AGTF).
