Working Group Psychotraumatology

You are here:

The working group Psychotraumatology deals with the treatment of trauma disorders.

The focus is on the evaluation and further development of various specific psychotherapeutic procedures as well as novel pharmacological treatment approaches. In addition to procedural and result-related research, the investigation of predictors and mediators should lead to a better understanding of favourable and unfavourable therapeutic processes as well as to a better fit between therapy method and symptomatology.

The primary goal of the working group is to improve the quality of life, social integration and functional level of those affected. Against this background, result parameters beyond classical symptom ratings are also investigated.
