Propedeutic Programme in Psychotherapy

Since 1991, psychotherapists in Austria have been legally required to complete a two-stage training. The first stage is the Propedeutic Programme in Psychotherapy, followed by the Advanced Study in Psychotherapy program. After successfully completing both stages, graduates can apply for the registry of psychotherapists.
