Employability

The Austrian Psychotherapy Law (§ 12/5) foresees awarding applicants the status of psychotherapist under the condition of training equivalence and on attendance of a hearing held by the Psychotherapy Advisory Board of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Health and Women’s Issues (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit und Frauen).

This reflects the contents of a letter sent by the Ministry for Health and Women’s Issues to the Austrian Accreditation Council and the Austrian Federal Association for Psychotherapy (ÖBVP) in June 2004. In August of 2003, the Ministry to the Austrian Accreditation Council officially confirmed that study courses as specified under § 12 taken at other universities will be credited to a student’s record at SFU.
