Prof. Dr. Ulrich Voderholzer
Psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy
We treat people, not diagnoses. Our holistic approach takes into account all aspects of your life. When planning your treatment, we focus on your needs and goals and take into account all medical, psychological and social factors of your illness equally.
Thanks to our size and the high degree of specialization that is possible as a result, we can offer you disorder-specific therapies that meet the special requirements of the various illnesses. Our excellent treatment results with a low risk of relapse confirm our approach.
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.
Over 30 years of experience and close cooperation with the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich ensure a high level of treatment at the cutting edge of empirical research. Our treatment concept is based on a multidisciplinary behavioural-medical approach.
Experienced professionals develop a treatment plan that takes into account your personal life experiences, needs and competencies. Therefore, no one treatment plan is the same as another. Together with your therapist you determine the goals and procedures. Your involvement is important to us, because your active participation at all stages of the therapy is essential for the success of the treatment.
Concrete and feasible changes in your life will be developed to achieve a long-term improvement in your physical and mental health.
During your entire stay you will be looked after by a reference therapist. Your medical care is guaranteed by the medical team. The reference therapist accompanies the entire therapeutic process and develops your individual psychotherapy programme. He is usually also present also in some group psychotherapies. Your reference therapist is in constant contact with the respective head physician, senior physician and senior psychologist. He is your first point of contact for all aspects of the therapy.
Co-therapists are certified health and nursing staff - predominantly with several years of in-service training in the field of psychosomatics - and an important keystone in the therapy.
Co-therapists help you with specific individual and group activities, such as learning relaxation techniques, socially competent behaviour or in testing new manners of behaviour. The co-therapists will also help you with organisational questions or to find your way around the clinic. They are also your point of contact if you would like to work on topics from individual or group therapy.
The Medical Centre is the main point of contact for you when it comes to organic medical care. The staff of the Medical Centre are medical assistants/health and nursing staff who are available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
On your ward you will have a doctor who will take care of your concerns and will be available for any medical questions and problems. At Schoen Clinic Roseneck, 24-hour care by experienced doctors with specialist qualifications in various fields is guaranteed.
The following indicative groups are established in our clinic:
The so-called indicative groups are special groups for a certain illness (e.g. depression), which have a fixed structure and a fixed patient composition.
Which indicative groups you participate in depends on your individual illness. Your reference therapist will discuss the therapy plan with you and explain to you which group offers are necessary in the treatment of your illness.
We have developed special therapy programmes for specific groups. These group constellations are necessary for sustained therapeutic success. The special feature of these special groups is that those affected can meet like-minded people and discuss their problems in a targeted manner.
AGIL - Work and Health in the Teaching Profession
The group therapy programme "Work and Health in the Teaching Profession", AGIL for short, was designed for teachers who find their profession highly stressful. The aim of this therapy programme is to develop strategies that can help you to remain healthy in the long term even after returning to work.
Stress management in the workplace
In the "Stress management at the workplace" therapy programme, those affected learn how to deal better with occupational stress. It is not a frontal lesson, but a programme based on interactions, which is close to everyday life through many role-plays.
Children and adolescents need more intensive care than adults, as well as a clinical therapeutic offering that is tailored to the needs of this age group. Experience shows: The earlier children and adolescents receive therapeutic treatment, the greater the chance of recovery and prevention of chronification. Our department for adolescents between 14 and 18 years of age treats patients with eating disorders, depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders, emotional disorders and attachment disorders. Eating disorders are the most common diagnosis, followed by depression.
patients with a primary addiction disorder, severe dementia or acute self-endangerment cannot be admitted at Schoen Clinic Roseneck.
The minimum age for treatment is usually 14 years.
We want you to be healthy in the long term. However, this can only succeed if what you learn in the clinic, you can integrate into your everyday life. For this, we rely on a combination of preparation and taking personal responsibility. Even before admission to the hospital we will talk to you about the time after your stay at the clinic. And during the treatment, the focus is always on: How would you do this at home? So that after the clinic, you do not revert to the way you were before the clinic.
