Welcome to our website ! The research group "Translational Psychotherapy" (Head: Prof. Dr. Andre Pittig) was established at the Georg-Elias-Müller-Institute of Psychology in 2023.

Following the motto “From the laboratory to treatment and everyday life”, our research group pursues a translational research agenda with the vision of understanding the processes and mechanisms of the development and treatment of mental disorders, optimizing existing treatments, and generating new, individual treatments. To this end, we combine a variety of methods in a translational sense, from laboratory-based learning and decision-making paradigms to smartphone-based everyday assessments to outcome- and process-based psychotherapy trials. You can find more about our research here. Current publications of the research group are listed in the publication overview.

In teaching, we cover various areas of psychology, especially seminars and lectures in the field of clinical psychology and psychotherapy. You can find more information about specific courses under Teaching.We continuously offer topics for Bachelor and Master theses.
