Through the creation and operation of this Committee, one of the major goals of organizing our Congress took form: the Congress functioning as a means of creating communication channels among Body Psychotherapists, but also with related academic fields in Greece, Europe and the rest of the world.
In this context, communication, cooperation and live open dialogue offered many opportunities for multidisciplinary creative thinking and deepening in the central issues, so that to experience this Congress as early as its preparation, as a collective process that harmoniously unites resources, brains and hearts, specializations, skills and experiences on common desired goals.
Thanks again to our colleagues for such a great availability in this interaction and for the great effort they made using their knowledge and experience to contribute to the design and presentation of a lively and interesting outcome.
