Professor Renos Papadopoulos

Professor Renos Papadopoulos.

Professor Renos Papadopoulos from our Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies is to receive an award for his Outstanding Contribution to the Field of Family Therapy by the European Family Therapy Association (EFTA).

The decision to recognise Professor Papadopoulos was voted for unanimously by the EFTA Board and also recognises his contribution to systemic practice.

On hearing he’d won the award, Professor Papadopoulos said, “This is an immense honour for me and the university. It is humbling to know that my work over the years in teaching, in research and through intervention projects associated with the Centre for Trauma, Asylum and Refugees has received such prestigious recognition."

EFTA was established in 1990 and has members from 29 European nations. It is a non-profit organisation designed to link and co-ordinate European organisations, institutes and individuals in the field of family therapy.

They seek to promote the highest level of competence and quality in practice, research, supervision and teaching in family therapy and its allied fields.

Professor Papadopoulos will receive his award in September during a special ceremony at the 9th EFTA Congress in Athens.
