In a mailing to all EAP Board members he wrote:
“I want to inform You that the German parliament has voted for a new psychotherapists law which ends the dominance of psychology over psychotherapy.
It is not necessary to be a psychologist or medical doctor before becoming a psychotherapist:
The law creates a new academic discipline of psychotherapy with a bachelor and a master in psychotherapy. After these studies there is a approbation examination which allows to treat patients.
If the person wants a „seat“ of the social security, a postgraduate training follows.”
