After an initial diagnostic phase (two to three appointments for diagnosing and collecting patient history), we can inform you whether our psychotherapy services are suitable for you and offer a spot in either individual or group therapy
The Psychosis Outpatient Clinic Berlin – a cooperation between the IPU university outpatient clinic and the Charité university outpatient clinic at the St. Hedwig hospital (PUK SHK) – treats patients with schizophrenia and schizoaffective psychoses.
Here, we offer a modified psychodynamic psychosis psychotherapy, which is a specially developed form of psychodynamic psychotherapy, tailored to these patient groups. This psychotherapy is conducted in both individual and group therapy settings.
The goal of the Psychosis Outpatient Clinic Berlin is, for one, treating patients with psychoses according to guidelines with a psychotherapy method specific for this patient group. An additional goal is to follow these treatments for research and quality management purposes.
A unique feature of the Psychosis Clinic Berlin is the partnership between the IPU university outpatient clinic and the PUK SHK in Berlin Mitte, which is a university clinic that also has the ability to treat patients using medication.
This means that, under specific conditions, patients with psychoses can begin an appropriate psychotherapy at the Psychosis Outpatient Clinic Berlin directly after completing an in-patient treatment at the PUK SHK. This outpatient psychotherapy can take place either in the IPU clinic offices or in the PUK SHK rooms. This makes it possible to have a large staff and allows for continuity within individual psychotherapy treatment concepts.
