The origins of CCAFPAA date back to the early 1980's when Tavistock-trained Dr. Charles Enfield established supervision groups in object relations family psychotherapy in Sydney. Since then the Institute has been very active in running workshops and supervision groups and has held three major conferences with international speakers: Dr. Stan Tsigounis, Group Analyst, in 2006, Drs. David and Jill Scharff in 2008, Dr. Christopher Clulow in 2011.  More recently CCAFPAA has organised a two day workshop with Mary Morgan, Psychodynamic Couple Psychotherapist & Psychoanalyst, and Head of Clinical Training in Couple Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the Tavistock Institute, London and a special event featuring Warren Coleman on the topic of "Emergence".
