“Dialogue on approaches to the treatment of addictions”

Sigmund Freud University, Freudplatz 3, 1020 Vienna

This symposium is a continuation of last year’s symposium and aims to continue the discussion between leading experts from different countries and professional fields on the theory and practice of addiction psychotherapy.

The Ukrainian colleagues presented their own innovative model of psychotherapy of addictive disorders, which is an integral phase of recovery after rehabilitation for people with addiction experience. This year’s symposium summarizes the results of several years of work – reflections, theoretical discussions, implementation of pedagogical and psychotherapeutic projects. Symposium participants will have the opportunity to communicate personally with project participants who have undergone psychotherapeutic treatment.

At this symposium we want to present our experience of addiction psychotherapy and discuss new developments and challenges of this method as well as share experiences with numerous international experts in this field.
