Is therapy without therapist possible?

This weekend, the European congress for solution focused therapy occurs in Dresden. The organization asked me to organize a panel discussion about the question whether it is possible to perform psychotherapy without therapist. An interesting question when you know that many people sometimes solve their problem themselves without external help, or with the help from a loved one, partner, or friend. An self-help books, too, have become popular and useful lately. You see, the landscape of options to solve stress-bound problems has expanded a lot in recent years. Definitely now that the internet offers even more new options.

How can you make yourself unnecessary as psychotherapist with the help of self-help exercises and techniques?

The conversation will go on starting next Saturday, the 24th of September, at 17.00 o'clock in Dresden. Next week, we will shortly summarize the conclusions of this symposium in this series of articles.
