Briffault, Butollo, Castonguay, Francesetti

The role of the scientific and pedagogical council is to assist the institute in the preparation and evaluation of its training courses and in the implementation of research projects for IDeT and its students.

IDeT has chosen as members of this council personalities who, beyond having a brilliant academic background, have close perspectives on the patient-therapist relationship which they consider as a central factor in the change process. These personalities have agreed to collaborate with IDeT to help its students to put it at the heart of their psychotherapeutic practice.
