Psychoterapy school

Founded by Valeria Ugazio in 2002, the School offers a four-year training (2,000 hours) for conducting INDIVIDUAL, COUPLE and FAMILY psychotherapies, hinges on an innovative model of therapeutic intervention, firmly rooted in the systemic-relational psychotherapeutic tradition opened more than fifty years ago by Gregory Bateson and the Palo Alto Group (Haley, Weakland, Watzlawick et al.)

The model of intervention on which the School is based is characterized by an attention to subjectivity and to individuals, in the context of the relationships in which they are embedded. Emotions, meanings, feelings, explanatory schemes and individual belief systems are as central to our model as interactions, relationships and conversational processes within the family. Thanks also to this attention to the individuals and to their subjectivities, the School maintains a close dialogue with clinical cognitivism and with the other psychotherapeutic models that take part in the international debate.
