Psychotherapy (behavioural therapy) module in the specialist course for psychiatry and psychotherapy

Curriculum Behavioural Therapy

According to the guidelines of the state medical associations, theoretical and practical modules are required for further training as a doctor of psychiatry and psychotherapy as well as for the additional title of psychotherapy. Many training hospitals, university institutions as well as psychiatric state hospitals are confronted with the difficulty of offering these required further training courses to their own assistants undergoing further training.

Since 1995, the University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy has been offering a three-year curriculum which, following the successful and proven model of the further training courses of the State Medical Association of Westphalia-Lippe on Borkum, enables structured and practice-oriented further training in the field of behavioural psychotherapy. The University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy offers the modules described here for the acquisition of the specialist qualification in psychiatry and psychotherapy as well as for the additional qualification in psychotherapy. The further training offers include theory courses, relaxation procedures, self-awareness and case supervision and thus cover important contents according to the requirements of the guidelines of the State Medical Association of Baden-Württemberg.

The University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Tübingen offers block seminars under the umbrella of the WISSENS-TRANSFER of the University of Tübingen for the acquisition of the theoretical basic knowledge of behavioural psychotherapy. Three block courses of 50 hours each are offered, which - thematically building on each other - are offered at intervals of one year. The courses are held at three different locations each year, so that all parts of the course are offered either in Hornberg (Black Forest), Bamberg or Borkum. Structure and contents are the same at all course locations.

Content of the block courses
The aim of the courses is to teach the basics, methods and areas of application of behaviour therapy, in accordance with the guidelines of the Baden-Württemberg State Medical Association. The detailed programme of the individual weekly courses can be found in our information brochure, which we will also be happy to send you. In addition to teaching the theoretical principles of behaviour therapy through lectures, the focus is on practical application in seminars and small group work. The courses are suitable both for obtaining the specialist qualifications in psychiatry and psychotherapy for adults and children and adolescents, psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy, and for the additional training in psychotherapy.

Self-experience courses are arranged in Tübingen via the University Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Tübingen and WISSENSTRANSFER of the University of Tübingen, in accordance with the guidelines of the continuing education regulations.

The self-experience groups comprise 150 units, which are offered in blocks of 10 units of 45 minutes each on a weekend day at intervals of about four weeks.

Registration and start of the curricula
Self-experience courses usually begin a few months after the first block course. For participants of the theory seminars, registration is possible during the first course. You can also register for self-awareness without attending the theory courses. For information about the next course start, please contact Prof. Batra.


The recognition of successfully completed self-awareness requires continuous participation. Withdrawal is not possible after the beginning of the course. Costs for missed self-awareness sessions must be paid without deduction. Missed self-awareness sessions can be made up by attending an additional session.

Within the framework of the first and third week of further training, one course each in Progressive Muscle Relaxation according to Jacobson is offered, so that the courses required in the further training regulations can be completed by attending these course weeks.


Some modules are not offered by the University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Tübingen and WISSENSTRANSFER of the University of Tübingen and must be acquired externally. For details, please refer to the relevant further training regulations.
