The international Association of Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes (IAGP) was founded as a non-profit volunteer organization in 1973. For fifty years its main focus was on enhancing group therapy aiming to improve people’s lives, and training group therapists with the knowledge of strengthening communities at large. Recently, IAGP and its Trauma and Disaster Committee has been called upon to provide support in various places (e.g. Ukraine, Lebanon). With the multitude of crises, one area seems to have faded from the attention of many organizations, even though it is the focus of two epic proportions acts of war, mass atrocities and a natural disaster. That area is in South-East Turkey with a long border with Syria.
