The Extended Therapy Room Foundation

Therapeutic Practice | Research | Knowledge Exchange

The people we meet in daily practice ask for someone to talk to when life is at stake, when it´s hard to know what is happening and how to be in the world.

Our foundation is an alternative to psychiatry.

Our work is both preventive and a support for those who don’t want to be defined like patients any more. We meet with children, young people and adults.

We do no promise any one for all “solution”, since it does not exist, either in professional work or in life itself. The most important is about something else; to “be there” together with the person whom it concerns taking into account the social, political, cultural and not at least relational context.

Through our big international network knowledge and experience is mediated- our own as well as others. Through practice, research, and knowledge exchange. In a conversation between two people, and in the big plenary hall filled with people coming from different backgrounds, bringing different perspectives.
