The method of positive and transcultural psychotherapy (PPT), which has been developed by Prof. Nossrat Peseschkian since 1968, is a deeply psychologically based, humanistic psychotherapy method that u. a. is recognized by the European Society for Psychotherapy (EAP) and the State Medical Association of Hessen.
Image of man: The image of man that underlies positive psychotherapy is, among other things. characterized in that it is based on the abilities and resources of humans. Furthermore, it is characterized by its holistic view of man as a unity of body, mind, feelings and soul.
Resource orientation: Positive psychotherapy not only takes into account the disrupted areas of the human being, but above all also his abilities. The word “positive” (Latin positive) means “the whole, the actual”. Positive psychotherapy uses a person’s individual skills and resources to develop strategies for conflict management and self-help. With this in mind, conflicts are seen as a challenge to further develop these skills.
Areas of application: With the help of cross-cultural tools and innovative techniques, positive psychotherapy can be used in a variety of settings. Because of its easy comprehensibility, it is also used successfully outside of the psychotherapeutic framework in the areas of education, training and counseling.
