Couple therapy with a sexual therapeutic focus

The training series

Challenges and crises ...
... are everyday life in a couple's life. The causes of conflict can be manifold, and so can solutions. Therefore, working with couples is an exciting and varied therapy context.

Since most psychotherapists work in single settings, working with couples is uncertain terrain for them, so that couple therapy is unfortunately rarely offered. A central and at the same time neglected topic within couple therapy is the sexual relationship between the partners.

In the training series Couple Therapy with sexual Therapy Focus offered by the ZPP Mannheim, we have set ourselves the goal of improving psychotherapeutic care in this area.

The training series represents a qualified training programme for psychological and medical psychotherapists, child and adolescent psychotherapists and psychotherapists in training (after an intermediate examination). The seminars are based on behavioural therapy and systemic procedures.

Recognition as certified training is requested from the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Psychotherapists.

... accept and master.

Target audience

This offer is aimed at approved psychological psychotherapists, child and adolescent psychotherapists and specialists. Training candidates can take part after a successful intermediate examination.


You will receive a certificate of participation after each seminar. Accreditation via the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Psychotherapists has been applied for. A certificate of participation in the entire training curriculum will be issued separately.


Depending on the current situation, the workshops take place as online seminars.
