Group therapy

In addition to the individual therapy sessions in an outpatient setting (outside the hospital with inpatient stay) that we offer at our Trauma Institute and at Psylux Cabinet Pazooki (practice), we also offers group therapy for borderline personality disorder (BPD) and for patients with eating disorders (ES). The therapeutic goal of group therapy is the joint processing of the disorder(s) within a group so that patients can benefit from the group dynamics, from inter-individual interactions and from the experiences of other group members who have the same disorder and who are under therapeutic supervision. Our group therapy is aimed at adolescents and adults between the ages of 14 and 60. The therapeutic methods we use in our group sessions are as follows:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
Schema therapy (ST)
individual psychological dynamic - analytical psychotherapy (IP)

Our group therapy is designed for 40 sessions per year and follows a very precise and schematic therapy planning in order to achieve the goals. As a matter of principle, we take great care to ensure that our therapy groups consist of homogeneous and disorder-specific persons/members as far as possible, so that a qualitatively high level of therapeutic work can be made possible. These are closed groups, i.e. once a group has started, no further people can join. If the demand or need for group therapy is correspondingly high, we will start a new group. A group consists of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 15 people so that the therapeutic overview is not lost. Participation in group therapy is less expensive than individual therapy. We are also happy to offer personal counselling in a one-to-one counselling session. The groups are each led by a very experienced psychotherapist and a therapeutic assistant. The group authority is always with the psychotherapist.
