Professorship for Psychological Interventions and Psychotherapy

Prof. Dr. Christoph Flückiger




Our research focuses on the following questions:

  • Which factors explain the effectiveness of psychological interventions?
  • What role do psychotherapists play in the treatment process and how do they influence the treatment outcome?
  • Are general characteristics sufficient for an effective treatment?
  • How can negative treatment processes be detected early in order to prevent the dropout?


Outpatient Clinic

Our outpatient clinic is directed towards people who suffer from generalized anxiety disorders. Patients with generalized anxiety disorders often consult a general practitioner because of physical symptoms. However, they do not report that they are highly worried. For this reason, generalized anxiety disorder is often treated medically although a psychological treatment would be necessary.
