The psychotherapy of children and adolescents is significantly different from the psychotherapy of adults, especially regarding the role of the therapist, the relationship and cooperation with the parents, since the acceptance of the therapy depends on the cooperation with the parents.
The integrative psychotherapy program of children and adolescents is based on a developmental approach to children and young people, incorporating a humanistic and integrative approach (Gestalt, TA, PA), Self psychology, intrasubjective and relationship theories.
The educational program lasts for 4 years, and upon completion of education and examination, candidates receive a European Certificate of Child and Adolescent Integrative Psychotherapist.
