Starting in the winter semester 2021/22, the PHB (Berlin Psychological University) offers the new Master's degree course, which conforms to the requirements for licensing, MSc Psychology: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy The course is designed in accordance with the requirements of the reform of the Psychotherapists Act and prepares students for the new licensing examination and a procedure-specific further training as a specialist psychotherapist. In small year groups and seminar groups, students find intensive and personal support from professors and lecturers who are both first-class scientists and experienced psychotherapists in the clinical field and thus represent the claim of Scientist Practitioners. Practised procedural diversity is one of our main concerns at PHB. This means that the exchange with and between representatives of different psychotherapeutic directions is very important to us. In our new Master's degree, students now have extra time and space to get to know the four scientifically recognised procedural directions, to orient themselves and thus to find out which direction suits them best. Finally, with the degree, students are optimally prepared for the newly designed licensing examination. Subsequently, a procedure-specific further qualification can be completed directly at the PHB in three procedure disciplines if desired.
