Welcome to the Association for Family Therapy Symposia Website.  It contains information and online booking facilities for both of AFT's Symposia which take place in Bristol on 01 May 2020 and Manchester on 18 September 2020.  Online booking for the Manchester Symposium will not be available until mid-April 2020.

Each Symposium focuses on a different theme and attendance is available to both members and non-members.  We highly recommend attending one or both Symposia as they will provide valuable insight from highly respected experts within the field, along with providing an excellent networking opportunity.   The AFT Annual General Meeting will take place during the Manchester Symposium.
