Anthroposophic psychotherapy is a relatively new discipline within the Medical Section of the School of Spiritual Science, having developed since the 1980s in contrast to anthroposophic medicine which has been developing since 1920.  As such its knowledge base is limited.  Anthroposophic psychotherapy research is thus by necessity primarily based on qualitative case-orientated research to develop theory and practice to broaden its knowledge base.  


  • To promote the development of anthroposophic psychotherapy as an integrative approach to psychotherapy based on anthroposophic-Goethean methodology,
  • To utilise research-led teaching to develop anthroposophic psychotherapy practice,
  • To help course participants to become advanced practitioners, achieve World Health Organization standards and, if required, achieve United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy registration standards.
  • To achieve these aims the course will have a practitioner research element which will adapt the research principle expressed by Rudolf Steiner (in lectures entitled The Book of Revelation) in regard to anthroposophic medicine; namely to understand  ‘each individual case thoroughly, regardless of the outcome’ by studying it ‘with all its idiosyncrasies’ before utilising statistical research (Steiner, 1924/1998, p.252).


This is a post-qualifying course, so applicants must have:

• An international Medical Section Certificate in Anthroposophic Psychotherapy or

• An international Medical Section Certificate in Anthroposophic Medicine or

• If an anthroposophic psychotherapy trainee, evidence that you will have completed three years of training in the current anthroposophic psychotherapy course in the UK by February 2022 or

• If an anthroposophic doctor trainee, evidence that you will have completed the current anthroposophic doctor course in the UK by February 2022
