Psychotherapy Science: Summer School on Self-Concept, Identity and Prejudice

Dear all,

the Rector, the Dean and the Organizer of the SFU Summer School have decided to postpone this year’s Summer School to 2021. Even in September this year the situation concerning Covid-19 pandemic is unclear. Due to this uncertainty, the SFU took responsibility in order to avoid a possible spreading of the Sars-Cov-2 virus.

At the moment it is scheduled that the programme of this year’s Summer School will be presented next year, most likely in the first two weeks of July 2021. We hope to welcome you then.


Every year in summer, Sigmund Freud University Vienna opens its doors for international students to present a blend of its strength in psychotherapy science. The SFU’s Summer School aims at attracting students from around the world, creating a vibrant and diverse atmosphere. 

Start your summer in the right direction and be part of it when we focus on

“Self-Concept, Identity and Prejudice”

During the two weeks, “Self-concept, Identity and Prejudice” will be discussed from the following four psychotherapeutic perspectives: psychoanalysis, systemic family therapy, gestalt therapy, and person-centred therapy. All sessions will be held in English by experienced specialists who will provide high-quality training to you. In addition to the lectures, Summer School participants will spend afternoon sessions at the Sigmund Freud University’s Outpatient Clinic.

» Number of participants limited to 25 students
» Early bird special for bookings until 31st May, 2020
