Therapeutic Interaction in dyads and groups

Save the date: March 18th and 19th, 2023

Continuing education points will be applied for at the Berlin Chamber of Psychotherapists for the entire conference.

We cordially invite you to the third annual conference of JUNKTIM e.V. on March 18 and 19, 2023.

At the upcoming annual conference of JUNKTIM we want to explore together with conversation researchers and psychotherapists, therapeutic reality based on actual psychotherapeutic conversations. An important question will be how conversation research can become helpful for practicing therapists and how the rich experience of practitioners can in return enrich conversation research.

This year we would like to broaden the focus of the conference to include conversations in therapeutic groups in addition to contributions on classical dyadic therapeutic interaction.

The annual conference of JUNKTIM – Empirical Conversation Research in Psychotherapeutic Interaction has several goals. We want to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange between linguists, psychotherapy researchers and clinically working psychotherapists. As in previous years, explicit attention will be paid to the opportunities and risks of the exchange between the disciplines. Furthermore, we would like to promote networking with young scientists.

The conference language is German.
