The EFPP consists of four sections working with psychoanalytic psychotherapy for Adults, Children and Adolescents, Groups and Couple and Family Psychotherapy. The youngest of them, the Couple and Family section, was established at the biennial Delegates’ Meeting in 2009.
The Board consists of two persons from each section (Section Chair and Section Representative) plus the President. According to the EFPP constitution (amended in 2017), the members of the Board are elected by the Delegates in the section assemblies. The president is chosen directly by the assembly of all Delegates at their biennial meeting. Members of the Board including the president are elected for four years and can be re-elected for another period of four years. The Board also requires the help of an administrative secretary. The Board can co-opt members to take part in the work with specific tasks.
