Welcome to Amsterdam!

The International Federation for Psychotherapy (IFP) has invited the Dutch Psychotherapy Association (NVP) to organize the 22nd World Congress of Psychotherapy on 7-9 June 2018 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In a rather divided world - reflected in competing theoretical perspectives in psychotherapy - we would like to stress the urge for integration and tolerance. Therefore, we chose the theme:


The NVP is very proud to welcome psychotherapists from all over the world to our country. The NVP has invited scholars and experts from a variety of theoretical perspectives to cooperate in the Scientific Committee to develop a program that will be both scientifically and clinically interesting, sharing their perspectives on theory, development and research on psychotherapy.

Our Keynote Speakers are Les Greenberg, Robert DeRubeis, Marylene Cloitre, Bruce Wampold, Jan Ilhan Kizilhan & Pim Cuijpers

Venue: the ‘Beurs van Berlage’
The congress will be held in the Beurs van Berlage, right in the heart of Amsterdam. This landmark red brick building was once commodity and stock exchange, but now serves as a popular conference venue, located in the middle of the city and close to the Central Station. We very much are looking forward to welcome you in Amsterdam, on 7-9 June 2018!

Nel Draijer, president NVP
Paul Emmelkamp, president IFP
