Clinical psychologists deal with the therapeutic treatment and support of people with mental and physical illnesses. Within rehabilitation psychology, the focus is on restoring the participation of people after physical or mental illnesses (e.g. in psychosomatic, neurological, oncological or geriatric rehabilitation) on a clinical-psychological basis. Furthermore, clinical psychologists accompany people in successful ageing across the lifespan.

 

Competences are taught that prepare them for psychological work in a clinical context and also enable them to fill management positions. After the Master's degree, there are many fields of activity, such as therapeutic work with mentally and physically ill people (e.g. in psychiatric, psychosomatic and rehabilitation clinics), counselling of mentally and physically ill people (e.g. in out-patient care facilities), counselling of mentally and physically ill people (e.g. in out-patient care facilities). in outpatient care facilities), counselling of and preventive work with children, young people and families (e.g. in counselling facilities), prevention and intervention measures (e.g. at health insurance funds), research activities (e.g. at non-university research institutions), activities in the health and counselling sector.
