Hellenic Society for Psychoanalytic Group Psychotherapy
The Hellenic Society for Psychoanalytic Group Psychotherapy was founded in 2014 in order to fulfill a serious need for such an institution in our country. It is a scientific association and its founding principles rest upon three pillars: a) on the group, b) on psychoanalytic theory and, c) on group psychoanalytic psychotherapy .Its members are psychiatrists, psychologists , social workers and mental health professionals who work with groups and have completed a training in psychoanalytic group psychotherapy and who have undergone psychoanalysis or individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
H.S.P.G.P. is open to the social sciences, to the analysis and study –always with a psychoanalytic approach- of institutions and organizations and to the provision of basic training, where it’s needed, via awareness groups.
Its goal is the scientific development and training in the field of psychoanalytic group psychotherapy and in the field of the applications of psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice in the domains of health, education, organizations and of business.
H.S.P.G.P. has its own Training Program, organizes meetings and Conferences, provides educational seminars , supports research and application initiatives related to psychoanalytic group psychotherapy and collaborates with other scientific associations and bodies in Greece and abroad.
