International team of professionals
We rely on a psychoanalytic approach and welcome the integration of different schools of psychotherapy. We create opportunities for representatives of all psychotherapy directions from different countries and cultures to participate in institute events.
Focus on broad international professional cooperation
We share the principles of the Strasbourg Declaration of the European Association for Psychotherapy of October 21, 1990, according to which psychotherapy is a free and independent profession. Independence, in our understanding, particularly means the absence of political engagement and the separation of personal political preferences from professional activities.
Professional platform where psychological, cultural, and philosophical perspectives meet.
We comply with and develop international training standards.
Simultaneity of past, present and future
We recognize psychotherapy as a phenomenon of contemporary culture. The specific activities of our institute include:
The study of the influence of the concept of time on the change in the quality of life;
Respect for the freedom of the psychotherapist to creatively integrate any humanities and natural science research into their practice;
Research on the complexity of mental processes in dynamic interaction between individuals and social systems.
Finding support in our origins while embracing the growth of branches aimed towards the future
We consider an extended course in the philosophy of great importance as the foundation of the psychotherapist training program.
Balance of creativity and order.
We acknowledge and observe ethical principles for individual relationships with students and institute instructors.
Modern online platform and traditional in-person education.
We invest our potential in the development of the online education system and integrate in-person forms of psychotherapist training into a holistic system.
We care about the establishment of private practice for institute graduates and assist them in organizing their work.
