The main purpose for The Extended Therapy Room Foundation is to describe, and by a social and therapeutic practice mediate a humanistic and sustainable knowledge based on a relational and a no diagnostic perspective.
Through daily practice which combines ordinary life knowledge, lived experience and professional knowledge, research and network exchange our aim is to be an alternative to the psychiatric paradigm.
We don’t promise any general “solutions”, since they don’t exist, either in the professional work or in life itself. The most essential is about something else, to be present with the one whom it concerns and to take into consideration different perspectives of life.
Experience and knowledge is mediated in our big global network where people from different backgrounds meet and share essential issues, dreams and hopes.
