History of The German Society for Anthroposophic Psychotherapy (DtGAP)

The German Society for Anthroposophic Psychotherapy (DtGAP) was founded as an independent specialist society in 2008. It deals with the development of offers for the training and further education of psychotherapists, organizes conferences and supports publications. In 2010, a uniform certification for anthroposophic psychotherapy was created, which is open to both doctors and psychological psychotherapists. Anthroposophic psychotherapy is still relatively young. Based on Rudolf Steiner’s studies in the humanities, a first psychotherapeutic approach emerged in the 1970s in what was then the Institute for Anthroposophically Oriented Psychotherapy under the direction of Paul von der Heide and other dedicated doctors and psychologists. Since then, this form of psychotherapy has been continuously developed.

The International Federation of Associations for Anthroposophic Psychotherapy (IFAPA) was founded in Dornach/Switzerland in 2012. Founding members were Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, India, the Netherlands, Argentina and Brazil (new: Chile and Switzerland). His current main task is to survey, describe and network the entire international field of work, as well as to represent psychotherapy in the coordination group of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum in Dornach.
