Dear members of ISTFP,
It’s already been a year since the ISTFP’s Public Relation and Communications Committee has been working at bringing our community closer and finding ways to disseminate the model more efficiently. This is why I feel that, before introducing the main subject, I should give you a summary of what as been done so far. I the past year we have:
- Successfully orchestrated and coordinated the promotion of the highly anticipated 7th ISTFP conference, ensuring a wide reach and strong attendance from professionals in the field.
- Developed and curated engaging newsletters, including the ISTFP members Newsletter and the Mental Health Professionals Newsletter, providing valuable insights, updates, and resources on TFP to a diverse audience.
- Established a comprehensive and GDPR-compliant database of mental health professionals, facilitating effective promotion of TFP events while respecting European regulations on personal data protection.
- Implemented a standardized system for event organizers to submit new training events, streamlining the process and ensuring consistency and efficiency in event management.
- Enhanced the ISTFP website by creating a dedicated TRAINING section, offering a comprehensive repository of seminars, courses and events related to TFP, catering to the needs of professionals and students alike.
- Enriched the ISTFP website with a NEWS section, featuring the latest updates, research findings, and noteworthy developments in the field of TFP, keeping the community informed and engaged.
Reaching and maintaining these achievements take a lot of time and energy. Veronica and I would like to express our gratitude to our team, Diana Tellez, Theophilus Kok, Silvia Bernardi and Glauco Valdivieso for their involvement in these different projects. We would also like to thank Darlene McCormick, ISTFP website webmaster, for her counsel, and Frank Yeomans who has shown tremendous support and guidance for our ambitious initiatives.
That being said, let’s go to our main subject: What are people saying about us?
