Maltepe University (Turkey)

The MA in Clinical Psychology with Body Psychotherapy Certificate is first of its kind in Turkey and the UK. The programme is developed in partnership between Maltepe University (Turkey) and The East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT, UK).


The course involves an explicit combination of clinical practice and theory of holistic body–mind functioning designed to improve emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration through body (self) awareness and embodied relating to others.


Body Psychotherapy is distinct from other clinical psychology programmes as it addresses the inseparable nature of cognitive, emotional, perceptual and physical aspects of self-experiences within a given psychosocial context. Goals include teaching students in respect of the applied common factors and processes of BPT for major diagnostic groups such as Psychosis (Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder), Severe Neurosis (Anxiety/Depression), Somatoform Disorders and Trauma- and Stress-Related Disorders.
