The university course “Trauma and Psychosis – New Paths to Understanding and Therapy” was established at Sigmund Freud University Vienna in the academic year 2019/2020.
Traumatic experiences often cause psychoses, just as psychoses very often result in psychotraumas. The course provides a profound understanding of the two phenomena of trauma and psychosis and shows how they can arise in the psychic structure of the human being. The deepened understanding of the structural psychological changes and practical life consequences that these extreme human borderline experiences produce also opens up new ways of encountering and treating traumatised and psychosis-experienced people.

  • The course is offered in German.
