Essential is an integrative perspective of the human body as a complex network of interconnected subsystems and an interdisciplinary dialogue with clients or patients. The objective is to integrate holistic methods in the counseling and therapy of legally recognized health professionals and to strengthen science and research in this area by international standards. The scientific basis is provided mainly by medicine and natural sciences as well as systems theory and analysis, cultural studies and social psychology. The master’s course will provide you with sound insight into holistic therapy forms and methods as well as the possibility to select an individual practical focus.
