Why Join Us

  • The Institute of Family Therapy and Systemic Social Action (IFT) is one of the best-known and highly regarded therapy and training organisations in the UK. Our training programmes offer high quality training in the field of family systemic psychotherapy with families, couples, and individuals as well as systemic social action within organisations and communities.


  • The four women IFT Directors came together in September 2022, based on shared values and commitment that has seen them promoting systemic thinking in mental health, social care, community and activist contexts for over 2 decades. The Directors have developed a shared ethical leadership framework with a bold mission statement (IFT Mission Statement ) centring Justice, Relationships, Hope.


  • If you have highly developed teaching, training, communication and leadership skills and would enjoy this opportunity to promote systemic theory and practice as a necessary response to a number of relational and social difficulties facing practitioners in the helping fields, we encourage you to join us.
