Beurs van Berlage

Psychotherapy Day 2023


Beurs van Berlage

The Beurs van Berlage is a hotspot that cannot be missed during your visit to Amsterdam. It is the vibrant meeting point in the heart of the city. One thing is certain, there is always something to do in the unique historical building! Have a bite to eat in one of our restaurants, visit the Tony's Chocolonely shop for the tastiest chocolate, order the most delicious fish dishes in The Seafood Bar, rent a bicycle or use one of the lockers in the Bike Rental and discover the secrets of Sherlocked. Check out events and the expositions in our calendar.

The world around us is changing quickly and dramatically. What does this mean for us and our profession? On the annual Psychotherapy Day 2023, we reflect on the influence of technological developments, climate change and the multicultural society on our functioning. And consequences for psychotherapy and the psychotherapist in particular.

The times they are a- changin’

New questions
Nitrogen problems, housing shortages, inflation, sea level rise, refugee flows, distrust in the government, war and threats, fake news, pressure on healthcare, new gender identities, artificial intelligence, they lead to new questions and an uncertain future perspective.

The times they are a-changin’
How do you grow up in a world that changes faster than you, with a future in which nothing is as it seems? How can a child bond safely in a world full of insecurity? What kind of perspective can we offer young people? What good is insight or hope for a client if the water rises to his lips?

What are we doing?
What are we going to focus our interventions on? Should we teach our clients to live with insecurity? Maybe our models are outdated and we have to adapt them.
