Quality Assurance at PsykosyntesForum
The Psychosynthesis therapy that is offered at PsykosyntesForum is based on a four-year training program at PsykosyntesAkademin, Stockholm, Sweden. The training meets the formal requirements for psychotherapists from the Swedish medical authorities, and the Psychosynthesis Academy has since a number of years had an ongoing discussion with the Swedish authorities about a government sponsored authorization for psychosynthesis therapists. This discussion is although now in hold due to an ongoing investigation by the corresponding authorities in the European Union, about an EU authorization of psychotherapists. In order to ensure the quality of its training programs the Psychosynthesis Academy at the start-up 1989 built an organization that includes a yearly assessment of the Academy by a Ethical Board consisting of authorized therapists, medical doctors and organizational experts.
In addition to this, the psychosynthesis therapist association PsykosyntesFöreningen supports the quality level of trained psychosynthesis therapists by stipulating training requirements for membership and by requiring that affiliated therapists adheres in writing to the ethical principles of the association. Members violating these can loose their membership and can be deleted from the recommended therapists list on the association's web site. By the membership PsykosyntesForum is also supported by specialized company and liability insurances.
