Anthroposophic psychotherapy

Anthroposophic psychotherapy is based on the anthroposophic understanding of the human being that is differentiated according to body, soul and spirit. Psychotherapy is needed not only for illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorders, anxiety disorders and depression. Numerous, primarily chronic diseases in childhood, adolescence and adulthood also go hand in hand with sometimes considerable mental suffering, and a spiritual search for meaning, perspectives on illness, and answers to biographical questions (1). Out of this viewpoint, psychotherapeutic procedures are used in oncology (2), cardiology (3), pulmonology (4), and other specialties as part of the integrative treatment of Anthroposophic Medicine in both outpatient and inpatient patient care.
