Our clinical focus is on the treatment modalities of acute psychiatry and crisis interventions, which are performed within the framework of the regional care mandate for the city of Magdeburg, bio-psycho-social treatment strategies, gerontopsychiatric differential diagnosis and therapy and special psychotherapy. We have a special clinical interest in the differential diagnosis and therapy of so-called endogenous psychoses, i.e. schizophrenic and affective disorders and trauma sequelae. Special emphasis is also placed on the personnel, material and spatial equipment of co-therapies, i.e. music therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and sociotherapy, as these forms of therapy are important additions to the treatment program and patients spend a considerable proportion of their inpatient time in such therapies.
