Interfamily Therapy is a modern form of therapeutic work, scientifically validated, which is placed half-way between psychotherapy and social intervention. It brings together different models such as attachment theory, group analysis, large group work, systemic family therapy and the so-called “Open Dialogue Practice”. It is applicable not only to mental health, but also to dealing with a variety of human problems and in a variety of institutions.

It is a model has proved to be useful for psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, doctors, social workers, occupational therapists, teachers and other professional groups.

It is a simple, practical and human treatment which implies a more social, ecological and democratic way of understanding and of acting on the problems of human beings, which could be expanded as a widespread model of intervention in mental health, social services and education, thanks to its efficiency and low cost.
