Dr. Michael Armbrust
Psychosomatic Hospital and Psychotherapy
The Schoen Clinic Bad Bramstedt is currently the largest psychosomatic clinic in Germany for acute and rehabilitation treatment. This size allows us a high degree of specialization in the range of therapy, which is unique in this form in the field of psychosomatics: The wards are organised according to focus and are supervised by multi-professional teams with proven expertise in the respective treated clinical picture.
Around 20 per cent of children in Germany have mental abnormalities, and ten per cent have clearly recognisable mental disorders. In recent years, the number of children and adolescents in need of treatment has increased steadily. They need more intensive care than adults, as well as a range of clinical therapies tailored to the needs of this age group. Experience shows: The earlier the children and adolescents receive therapeutic treatment, the greater the chance of recovery and prevention of chronification. In our departments for adolescents, we treat patients with eating disorders, depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders as well as emotional disorders and attachment disorders.
In addition to inpatient hospital treatment, our clinic also offers you inpatient rehabilitation.
The following diseases are treated in our clinic during rehabilitation:
The costs for the stay are borne by the health insurance company. In the case of the clinical pictures marked with *, the costs are also covered by the German pension insurance.
Overview of the clinical pictures:
We offer special therapy programmes to certain patient groups. We have developed these so that we can respond more specifically to the special needs and requirements of those affected. You benefit twice as much, because the effect of helping each other in the group should not be underestimated.
Depression 60+ Therapy Concept
Depression often comes with the beginning of retirement. Since the treatment of depression is different in each phase of life, this concept is specially adapted to patients over 60 years of age.
Therapy concept for doctors & therapists
Consultants and therapists are particularly often affected by depression with a burnout background. However, they don't like to be helped by colleagues. Our approach is therefore aimed at providing an incentive to accept help.
AGIL - Work and Health in the Teaching Profession
The AGIL therapy concept was designed for teachers. You’ll learn strategies for staying healthy in the long term, even after a return to work.
The indicative groups are special groups for a specific disease that have a fixed structure and a fixed patient composition. Your referring therapist will discuss the therapy plan with you and explain which group offers are necessary for the treatment of your illness.
In addition, your ward has the so-called General Psychotherapy Group, which is thematically more open, also ongoing and not fixed. Every patient participates routinely.
Psycho-Physiological Information Group - Biofeedback
Biofeedbacks are used to measure physical processes under stress, such as muscle tension or heartbeat, and make them visible on the computer screen. The aim is to develop strategies to improve self-perception and consciously reduce tension.
We operate according to the so-called “reference therapist system". You get to know your reference therapist (psychologist or doctor) already in the admission interview, who works out the individual disturbance model with you on the basis of the biography. On this basis, he draws up the customised treatment plan together with the patient and develops the targeted therapeutic interventions.
Depending on the type of disorder, our therapeutic colleagues will work out a therapy plan tailored to your situation at the beginning of your stay. Developing individual solutions and specific offers is one of our strengths. The therapy modules listed here are only a first general list of what can be included in our treatment plans.
