Dear Colleagues,

Get ready for an invigorating journey of the mind and soul as we cordially invite you to the First International Caucasian Conference on Positive and Transcultural Psychotherapy: “Positive and Transcultural Psychotherapy as a Bridge between Cultures”. This landmark event takes place from 13-15 October 2023, in the heart of the ancient country of Georgia, Tbilisi.

The founder of Positive Psychotherapy, Professor Nossrat Peseschkian, succeeded in combining the scientific and rationalism of the West with the folk wisdom and spirituality of the East in his method. And transcultural sensitivity is one of the most important abilities of the specialists of our approach. Georgia is a country located at the crossroads of Western and Eastern civilizations. Here as nowhere else one can feel the unique experience of interaction and cooperation between representatives of different cultures and worldviews for many centuries. What a better place to meet at the present challenging time of human history, and to meet new and old colleagues from different cultures, to exchange views and perspectives, to build bridges between people – and to return home with many transcultural experiences and full of energy.

Today Positive Psychotherapists live in more than 40 countries, and the World Association has more than 2,000 members.

Our conference program promises a rich tapestry of learning and exploration. Engage in enlightening lectures, collaborative workshops, transcultural self-expedience groups and immerse yourself in the unparalleled culture of Georgia through our curated excursions. Stay tuned for our detailed program, which will be shared soon.

This conference is for psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, psychosomatic experts, teachers, and students.
