Academic Partnership With Maltepe University

Academic Partnership With Maltepe University

An exciting new joint venture between ELFT and Maltepe University, Istanbul, Turkey led to the development and launch of a master programme (MA) in Clinical Psychology with Body Psychotherapy Certificate.

This is the first of its kind in Europe and Asia and takes years of successful research in the area of body oriented psychological therapies conducted in East-London to the international community.

The MA in Clinical Psychology with Body Psychotherapy Certificate is developed in collaboration with leading international clinicians and academics. The curriculum development and delivery is co-facilitated by Professor Frank Röhricht and Assoc. Prof Özden Bademci.

Prof Frank Röhricht provided the first course on behalf of ELFT in October 2019. The programme has already received significant attention and for the first year it received 115 applications for 12 places.
