2013 IAFP Tokyo Conference Theme:Family Collaboration against Global and Local Crisis

With great pleasure and anticipation for a fantastic event, we announce the International Academy of Family Psychology’s 7th Conference and invite you to plan to join colleagues from around the world in Tokyo Japan, Aug. 29- Sept.1, 2013.?
The goal for the conference is to continue the mission of IAFP when it was founded in 1990: to enhance international exchange and collaboration between researchers and practitioners working in the field of family psychology. Increasing globalization calls for a world-wide perspective on family issues such as changing family forms, diverse living conditions of families and their impact on family functioning, child bearing and child rearing, changing expectations and demands on partnerships, family relations in old age, and current trends in family education as well as family therapy.
The 7th Conference provides magnificent opportunities for face-to-face sharing of ideas, continuing education and networking with colleagues and leaders in the field of family psychology from around the globe. The 2013 theme, Family Collaboration against Global and Local Crisis, will focus on sharing current research and findings about challenges and risks for families; economic deprivation, migration, marital instability, coping with trauma in the family context, raising resilient children in the face of contextual threat, the implications of family change for intergenerational solidarity, family values and spirituality, addiction issues in families and cross-cultural perspectives on partnership and parenting. Our conference will provide a unique and exiting forum for psychologists, psychiatrists, researchers, academicians, clinician and students during four wonderful days together.
Tokyo is a lovely, peaceful setting for our conference. Tokyo is Japan's capital and the world's most populous metropolis. It is also one of Japan's 47 prefectures, consisting of 23 central city wards and multiple cities, towns and villages west of the city center. Its long history of prosperity started with the establishment of the shogunate by Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1603. At that time, Tokyo was called Edo, which by the 18th century had grown to a huge city of over a million people. Today, Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens.
Tokyo is now Japan's center for political, economic, cultural, and various other activities as well as the origin for the dissemination of information. We will play together as we work together! IAFP has a precious heritage of memorable conferences; this is a group that has a lot of fun together. Tokyo, with its rich heritage of family psychology and contribution of many family psychology leaders to the world, is the ideal place for our event. Presenters from scores of countries will gather to share and learn.
