Psychotherapeutische Hochschulambulanz


Welcome to the Outpatient Clinic for Research and Teaching

Our outpatient clinic is part of the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy (Chair holder: Prof. Dr. Sven Barnow). Our therapeutic team consists of licensed psychological psychotherapists. We offer comprehensive diagnostic and psychotherapeutic help.

The focus here is on concepts of emotion perception and regulation.
