Föderation der Schweizer Psychologinnen und Psychologen FSP The Federation of Swiss Psychologists (FSP) is Switzerland’s largest professional association for psychologists and psychotherapists. Psychological services of its 7’200 members have the highest standards of quality. Psychologists with an FSP standard must have a degree in psychology of a Swiss University or of a University of applied sciences. This is equal to the requirements of the «Psychologieberufgesetz (PsyG)» (Psychology Act): Until 2013, the professional title «psychologist» was not protected at all. The FSP has been engaged for many years to settle up this law for legal recognition and to protect our profession. The FSP is an umbrella organization. There are 46 affiliated associations – either regional or cantonal associations or associations representing a certain specialization.

There are associations for organizational psychologists, for sport psychologists, for coaches, for neuropsychologists, for clinical psychologists, several associations for psychotherapists, one for traffic psychologists and many more. The FSP unites the disciplines of psychology. As an acknowledged professional body, the FSP insists on improving its members‘ legal and financial position. As a PR platform, the FSP informs about the nature and qualities of psychological services. The association keeps its members up to date on all professional developments, it also publishes the journal «Psychoscope». And as a supplier of services, the FSP offers its members free (legal) advice, training courses, benefits and other support. >

Friday 17.45 - 19.15 opening lecture

Prof. Dr. Markus Hackenfort

Why we don’t do what we should do – examples of applied research in the fields of traffic and environmental psychology Room Red In several areas we know that road users don’t heed the existing rules, so it’s no surprise that at several crossings, in Zurich for instance, roughly 50% of cyclists are going through a red light. In the same way albeit most people may know much about the need of energy savings obviously it sometimes seems to be impossible to reduce the consumption of energy use. Apparently, even some of the best technical (safety) inventions, like assistant systems, don’t reach their full benefit – because of the «Human Factor»?

What keep us away from a behavior that is well known to be appropriate to reach energy efficiency or safety goals? This talk will give an insight into some theories and their practical application, which could explain the possible causes of the gab between desirability and reality. Furthermore, some approaches are given on how to promote a change towards a more energy efficient and safe behavior.

Markus Hackenfort is professor of traffic, safety and environment psychology at the ZHAW, Dept. Applied Psychology. He is the head of the research unit «Traffic and Safety Psychology» and co-head of the competence group «Human Factors». His further work and research interests refers to cognitive causes of unsafe behavior.

Friday 20.30 - 21.45 presentation FSP

Sébastien Simonet

about FSP - Federation of Swiss Psychologists Room Red There is always need for a professional organization. Although we have reached one of the most important gains – the protection of our title «psychologist» in the national law – there are further challenges for psychologists in Switzerland. The Federation of Swiss Psychologists (FSP) insists on improving its members legal and financial position. With a project called «Berufsbilder», the FSP is working on the perception of our profession: The association is promoting the variety of psychologists in presenting special job profiles. Psychological health is an asset worth protecting, and it needs

qualified experts to promote, maintain and restore it – in all areas of life. Currently, the FSP is working on a program to empower psychologists fighting for better terms of employment in their institutions. With trainings, information sheets and job descriptions its members should become fit for negotiations with their employers. In an ongoing political process, The Federation is fighting for psychological psychotherapy to be paid directly by the basic insurance. This process will last and will be reliant on the solidarity between psychologists of all disciplines. >

Industrial and organizational psychologist Sébastien Simonet is member of the FSP steering committee and senior managing partner of Nantys AG, a service provider in human resources management and assessments in Bern.

Vertiefungsrichtung in Prozessorientierter Psychotherapie nach Arnold Mindell

praxisnah - zweisprachig D/E international vernetzt – seit 1982 Prozessarbeit verbindet eine tiefenpsychologische Sicht des Menschen und systemisches Denken mit der Prämisse der humanistischen Psychologie: der Neigung zur Selbstaktualisierung des Potentials von Individuum und Gruppe. Analog der Sicht C.G. Jung’s verortet Prozessarbeit den Menschen in einem transpersonalen Bewusstseinsfeld. Das Institut für Prozessarbeit (IPA) bietet zukunftsfähige Methoden und Haltungen für die Begleitung von Veränderungsprozessen. Zentral ist die Schulung von Wahrnehmung und Aufmerksamkeit. Die Weiterbildung bezieht integral die Arbeit an Konfliktfähigkeit sowie die Facilitation von Team- und Gruppenprozessen mit ein.

Neurofeedback Working Memory Training in Healthy Older Adults Room Green Limitations and possibilities of neurofeedback for cognitive working memory training in healthy older adults are examined. Summarizing cognitive and underlying neuronal age-related changes, working memory is identified as a key ability declining with age. Therefore, its decline influences a broad range of cognition. There is already a great amount of cognitive training studies targeting healthy older adults’ working memory. A more recent approach is neurofeedback training. This method is a powerful tool that, amongst other ap-

plications, aims at modelling brain activity to enhance cognitive performance. Neurofeedback training shows huge potential in terms of training durability and transfer effects. Reviewing working memory neurofeedback training and neurofeedback training studies with healthy older adults, neurofeedback working memory training in older adults is discussed. Results reveal that neurofeedback has been successfully applied and is an eligible method to train working memory in older adults. Implications for future research are discussed.

Theresa Thaler

Comparing intuitive and culturally mediated Geometry in context of spatial and mathematical Ability Room Blue Geometry is one of the most important fields in mathematics. It is also a complex construct, and functions as the connecting piece between mathematics and spatial reasoning making it an important subject of study. It is assumed, that different core concepts of geometry exist. Two of those concepts are the intuitive geometry shared across different cultures and the culturally mediated geometry based on education and learning. The goal of

my thesis was to compare those two concepts. It was assumed that the culturally mediated geometry would actually have a closer relation to mathematical ability and mental rotation skills than to the intuitive aspects of geometry. This assumption was in fact supported by the results of the study and moreover, the results also indicated that they are in fact two related but separate geometric principles.

Eva Eggemann

Mindfullness meets psychotherapy Room Yellow Mindfulness and meditation in the context of psychotherapy and medicine became very popular during the last decades. Mindfulness exercises are used in therapeutically setting for the treatment of different mental health problems. Also whole manuals, like mindfulness based cognitive therapy are based on this con-


cept. What does it mean to integrate an originally Buddhism concept into psychology? What are the benefits of this fusion and are there risks as well? This presentation will introduce into mindfulness based psychological approaches and give room for the critical discussion about this integration.

Sandra Gloor

Divorce and new partnership in the middle-age group Room Red A new relationship after divorce was found to be beneficial for psychological well-being. There is a lot of research focusing this topic, but most of it is based on samples of younger participants with under age children. What about individuals who got divorced in their middle age? Do we find the same effects? If we consider the increasing number of individuals who get divorced in their middle age, future research should turn the spotlight to

this age group. Using the data set of NCCR LIVES IP212 study in Switzerland, variables of psychological well-being from people divorced at middle age, were compared under the aspect of being in a new relationship or not. However the focus of this bachelor thesis was not only the role of a new relationship, but also variables that might have a moderating effect, such as age, gender or duration of the marriage.

Najma C. Corridori

Rebirthing – bewusstes, verbundenes Atmen Room Red Rebirthing (von rebirth = Wiedergeburt) bedeutet Erneuerung bis auf die Zellebene des Körpers, Stärkung und Aufbau der Lebenskraft, sowie Harmonisierung der energetischen und seelisch-geistigen Ebenen durch bewusstes, verbundenes Atmen. Da zwischen Atem, Bewusstsein und Lebensenergie ein enger Zusammenhang besteht, können durch das bewusste, kreisförmige Atmen unterdrückte Gefühle und Erfahrungen - und deren Spannungen und Symptome im Körper - integriert und Konditonierungen aufgelöst werden. Es entstehen Erfahrungen von tiefer Ent-

spannung und Befreiung, von pulsierender Lebendigkeit, Einheit von Körper, Herz und Kopf oder von Stille, Frieden und Weite. Integratives Atmen bewegt sich über das lineare Denken von Ursache und Wirkung, Problem und Lösung weit hinaus zum akzeptierenden Wahrnehmen und Fühlen von dem, was ist. Der Workshop gibt einen kleinen Einblick in Herkunft, Ansatz und Methode von Rebirthing und vor allem eine Selbsterfahrung als Atmende/r oder als Begleiter/in eines kurzen Prozesses. >

Najma C. Corridori, ursprünglich dipl. Ergotherapeutin und Grundstudium der Psychologie, ist certified Rebirthrin und Biosynthesetherapeutin. Sie hat ein breites Spektrum an Erfahrung mit Körper-, Atem- Energie- und Gestaltarbeit, sowie Heilbehandlungen und Meditation.

Hypnosis – a serious therapeutic tool? Room Yellow This workshop will start with a brief historic overview and then focus on modern theories of clinical hypnosis and practical interventions.

Furthermore, we will debunk the myths of hypnosis and work out the difference between clinical approved hypnotherapy and manipulation like stage entertainment.

You will learn about the nature of hypnotic phenomena, discuss possible concepts like hypnotisability and suggestibility and you will be presented with recent neurobiological research findings.

The vast clinical applications in the context of goaloriented psychotherapy will be presented and exemplified; from smoking cessations, to anxiety disorders, pain, etc. And of course, there will be time for exercises and controversial discussions.

Caroline Maroni is a professional psychologist for Psychotherapy FSP and is a board member of ghyps, the Society of Clinical Hypnosis Switzerland.


Dr. Dirk Hanebuth

Saturday 14.00 - 15.00 lectures

Dr. Peter Lude

Spinal Cord Injury: The Subtle Processes of Coping Room Green Coping is a very complex process. Over the last decades, research came step by step closer to the subtle processes beginning from disorders such as depression and PTSD, then exploring adaptive and maladaptive coping strategies, then investigating appraisals. Longitudinal studies revealed functional and dysfunctional behaviour, correlations and differences in respect of the outcomes and the rehabilitation process as a whole. One might consider the onset of a spinal cord injury

as the beginning process of continuing decision making. What causes the individual with a SCI to survive? The body will react with strong natural survival processes to a vital threatening. It can be assumed that psychological reactions foster the will to survive. How can these processes be influenced and supported in a way that an individual becomes able to live a life with a severe health condition and a strong personality? Some crucial and generally valid aspects will be presented.

Peter Lude is a professional psychologist for Psychotherapy FSP with his own practice. He is also a lecturer for rehabilitation psychology at the ZHAW (Zurich University of Applied Science). He works in national and international research projects for the coping with cross section paralysis. Among other things he is Affiliate Faculty Member of the Swiss Paraplegic Research and the Swiss Paraplegic Centre of Nottwil.


Prof. Dr. Willibald Ruch

Using signature strengths: Positive psychology‘s new look on character Room Yellow In the 20th century research on individual differences mostly focused on temperament and ability. Gordon Allport (1971) banned character from psychology as an ethical concept but not a psychological one, «character is personality evaluated-personality is character devalued». When Allport and Odbert (1936) extracted trait terms from dictionary definitions, they kept the «social evaluations» separate from the «personal trait terms» The latter eventually lead to the widely known Five-Factor-Model. More recently, Peterson and Seligman (2004) reintroduced

character in psychology. Their Values in Action (VIA) classification of strengths and virtues aim at describing the good character as an important instance of optimal human functioning (e.g., at workplace, family, leisure time), and numerous studies verify that character strengths predict fulfillments in life; i.e., desirable life outcomes. Signature strengths are the most central strengths of a person, and their enhanced use increases well-being and calling. This approach will be critically evaluated.

Austria-born Professor Willibald Ruch, a founder of the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), is Head of the Section Personality and Assessment at University of Zurich’s Department of Psychology. His research interests concern the definition and measurement of personality and character generally, and in particular positive traits such as character strengths, virtues, humor, and cheerfulness, but also smiling, laughter and positive emotions.


Dr. Almut Schweikert & Sylvia Steven

The Individual in the Tension Between Cain and Abel, Showmanship and Shame Room Red During this presentation, we will make you acquainted with the Psychology of Emotional Needs of Leopold Szondi (18931986), the founder of Fate Analysis, a little-known branch of Depth Psychology. Together, we will be on the track of both the coarse and the finer emotions and find out how these emotional needs can cause conflicts and disorders and can at the same time reveal personal interests and aptitudes. Being jealous, envious, and ready to sense

injustice and unrighteousness can be understood as one specific group of emotional needs together with the opposing need to be kind, to regret, to remorse, and to make reparations. The finer emotions include the desire to attract attention, to be seen and recognized on the one hand, and to hide, to conceal, to shame oneself on the other hand. To visualize the emotional needs more clearly, they will be illustrated with dance performances.

Almut Schweikert is a professional psychologist for Clinical psychology and Psychotherapy. She is also a fate analyst. Sylvia Steven is a certified movement analyst.


Dr. Anne Herrmann

Couponing, Freemium, Pay What You Want: How pricing influences our behavior Room Blue Prices strongly influence consumers‘ behavior. This has led not only economists but also psychologists to develop theories about how pricing affects consumers‘ behavior. In this lecture, several pricing models are discussed from a psychological perspective. Furthermore, explanations will be provided on how and why these pricing models influence consumers‘ perception and behavior. The psychological insights gained from research on pricing have also changed how companies determine prices for their products and

services. Instead of simply setting a price that ensures a certain profit, sophisticated pricing strategies are utilized to influence consumers‘ behavior. Thus, in this lecture, we will also look at how companies use insights into consumer behavior when setting their prices. Specifically, we will look at couponing, freemium, pay what you want and flatrates. And finally, we will talk about conspicuous consumption, a term first introduced in 1899, but maybe even more relevant now due to social media.

Anne Herrmann studied business psychology at the University of Applied Sciences in Lüneburg, Germany. After different employments as a researcher and consultant she completed her PhD. She teaches courses on Business Psychology and on Behavioral Economics at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland.

«Here and Now» – How does GESTALTTHERAPY interfere to your problems of yesterday and tomorrow? Room Red Gestalttherapy was developed in the 40ies by jewish psychoanalysts, Lore und Fritz Perls – first in South Africa, later in the US-american exile – together with the sociologist Paul Goodman. The basic impulses for Gestalttherapy come from Freuds Psychoanalyse, Lewins Feldtheorie‘, the Gestaltpsychology and the Existentialism from Sartre and Zen Bud-dhism. The founders brought in an experience-oriented concept to work in therapy. Their personal practice taught them, that profound change only can take place when people/ clients first find the attitude of acceptance toward their problems/symptoms – accept it in the «here and now»– and then

work on their subject (theme/behavior/ symptom) in self-experience as well as in contact with the therapist. This way of working helps to differentiate actual problems from old activated situations and biographic acquired patterns – so called unfinished business. Important is here, that they can emotionally be identified by the client himself. This form of emotional recognition can lead to sustainable change or at least to more integration. Different experience oriented therapeutic interventions will be shown and can be self-explored in the workshop. >

Babs Schmidt is professional psychotherapist for Gestalt therapy with her own practice. She is the delegate of FSP, as the president of psychologists section at Swiss Association for Gestalt Therapy (svg).


Christine Albrecht & Thomas Lempert

Buddhistische Psychologie Room Yellow In der 2’500 jährigen Geschichte des Buddhismus sind Themen, welche die Psyche des Menschen betreffen, von Anfang an zentral. Zahlreiche Systematisierungen dazu wurden in den weiteren Jahrhunderten entwickelt. Das Bewusstsein z.B. wird unterteilt in sieben verschiedene Wahrnehmungsformen mit Unterkategorien und bereits ab dem 7. Jhd. werden mentale Zustände differenziert, z.B. elf heilsame (etwa Enthusiasmus, Flexibilität) und sechsundzwanzig unheilsame (z.B. Faulheit, Selbstgefälligkeit). Die Fähigkeit des Menschen, den eigenen Geist z.B. in der Meditation, mittels Visualisierungen oder körperlich-taktiler Übungen zu steuern, ist die Basis der Interven-

tionen in der buddhistischen Psychologie. Dabei geht es darum, die Kraft des Positiven zu entwickeln und das vermeintlich Negative transformiert und unterstützend einzubeziehen. In den letzten Jahrzehnten gab es zukunftsweisende Verknüpfungen der buddhistischen Psychologie mit der Positiven Psychologie. Diese Verknüpfungen werden etwa beim Konzept der Achtsamkeit intensiv universitär beforscht. Im interaktiven Workshop werden wir neben theoretischen Inputs und Präsentationen von Praxisbeispielen einfache, bewährte Tools üben. This workshop will be held in German. > >

Dr. Myshelle Baeriswyl Geschlechtervarianz Room Blue Die biologische Variabilität kennt mehr als nur zwei Geschlechter. In der modernen Biologie werden die Geschlechter nicht mehr als klar geschiedene Alternativen gesehen, sondern in ihrer reinsten Ausprägung als zwei Pole begriffen, zwischen denen sich eine Variationsreihe mit fliessenden Übergängen entspannt. In unserer heutigen Gesellschaft gibt es jedoch keinen sozialen Raum für Individuen, die zwischen den Geschlechtern stehen. Mit einer an ideologischen Beharrlichkeit, die an Starrsinn grenzt, wird behauptet, es gebe nur zwei Geschlechter, dass das Geschlecht unveränderbar sei, dass Körpergeschlecht und Geschlechtsidentität übereinstimmen, dass Genitalien

die essenziellen Indizien des Geschlechts seien, dass jede Person einem Geschlecht zuzuordnen sein müsse und dass die Dichotomie männlich/weiblich natürlich sei. Aber was ist eigentlich Geschlecht? Wie setzt es sich zusammen? Wie entsteht Geschlechtervielfalt? Woher kommt die Ideologie der Zweigeschlechtlichkeit? Wie gehen wir mit Menschen um, die nicht ins Zwangskorsett der Zweigeschlechtlichkeit passen? Was würde passieren, wenn wir Geschlechtervielfalt gesellschaftlich akzeptieren? Parts of the workshop will be held in German. Discussion in the end can be hold in every student‘s own mother tongue.

Myshelle Baeriswyl is a professional psychologist and the manager of the Fachstelle for Aids and Sexual Questions.


Robert Buchli

Reflecting on four years applied sport psychology in professional team sport Room Green In this workshop we will discuss challenges and obstacles of the mental work in team sports. The workshop will focus on the following topics: How the setting and the levels of intervention developed during the project? What are the do`s and dont’s” of my own role as a sport psychologist? Which concrete methods were effective in the field? After a 30 minute presentation small groups gather to evaluate the effectiveness of the presented interventions. The-

se interventions are based on theoretical models derived from evidence-based research. The participants develop the awareness of different levels of intervention in team sports, get in touch with intervention methods in practical experience with teams, have the possibility to discuss about more and less effective interventions of a presented project with colleagues and discuss other ways to solve those situations.

Robert Buchli is a trained primary school teacher and sport psychologist. Since 2007, he works at Sport Psychologie Wetzel GmBH. He is also a member of the Swiss Association of Sport Psychology (SASP) and the Föderation der Schweizer Psychologinnen und Psychologen (FSP).


Saturday 19:30 - 21:00 evening lecture

Prof. Dr. Martin Meyer Neuroplasticity and Learning in the Healthy Aging Brain Room Red Still to the recent past, scientists took it for granted that brain function and structure steadily decay after a peak in middle adulthood has been reached. Meanwhile compelling evidence has demonstrated that cognitive training and learning is able to stabilize and advance an individual’s performance in controlled lab environment or in daily life despite of progressing brain atrophy during late adulthood. Presently, a theoretical framework promoting the view of a dedifferentiating brain that immolates specified neural circuits in favor of universal large-scale networks is hotly

debated. By means of this reorganization the brain compensates the breakdown of local processing nodes and consolidates its function by forming novel associative large distance tracks. The talk will introduce present findings that corroborate the dedifferentiation hypothesis with a particular focus on speech and hearing. Furthermore the pros and cons of current cognitive trainings and related approaches to maximize brain functioning during middle and old adulthood will be comprehensively discussed.

Martin Meyer is the head of research unit Neuroplasticity and Learning in Healthy Aging at the University of Zurich.

Automatically detected synchrony of nonverbal behavior in therapeutic dyads with Kinect and its predictive value for session-outcome Room Red Background: Nonverbal synchrony, defined as coordination of patient’s and therapist’s body movement, has been associated with psychotherapy outcome. The current study is the first in the setting of psychotherapy, to present data collected using Kinect and differentiating movements separately for body parts. Methods: In a sample of thirty patients and their corresponding therapists, nonverbal synchrony was quantified using two independent, automated, objective analysis algorithms. Session-outcome was assessed with self-report post-session questionnaires.


Results: Significance of synchrony over pseudosynchrony was found for both movement evaluation methods, as well as higher synchrony in early sessions compared to late sessions. Discussion: As expected, both movement evaluation methods led to very similar results. Partly, the obtained results differed from previous findings. These apparent inconsistencies will be discussed. More explorations on the creation of proximity and distance between patient and therapist might be helpful to predict alliance and other outcome-measures.

I wonder HOW, I wonder WHY - Self-reflection and its impact on the experience of an action crisis Room Yellow Imagine you have set a goal and invest a lot of resources in striving this goal. After a while, setbacks have accumulated and serious doubts about the goal arise. Now you wonder: Stop or go on? This intra-psychic decisional conflict between disengaging from and continuing a goal is called an action crisis. Action crises – a process in which the person continuously switches between a pure volitional HOW-mindset and a motivational WHY-mindset – have been shown to have serious negative

consequences on psychological and physiological well-being. But action crises also contain an adaptive potential, as the pursuit of a goal can now be reevaluated. In order to successfully strive for a goal, continuous monitoring is essential which requires self-reflection. Do people differ in their ability to self-reflect and therefore also in their accuracy of monitoring an action crisis? Which consequences result from reflecting the WHY and the HOW of an action crisis?

Cultural differences in expressing emotions through emoticons in computer-mediated communication Room Green Emoticons represent one of the non-verbal channels in computer-mediated communication. They are representative of facial expressions due to their similarity. This thesis examined and discussed evidence favouring universal equality and cultural differences in expressing emotions through emoticons in computer-mediated communication. Current research indicates that cultural differences in emoti-

con styles and usage exist. This is due to varying focus and importance of different face regions to display emotions. Seeing how the Internet and social media have a global reach and impact, it is crucial to understand the cultural differences in verbal and non-verbal channels in the computer-mediated setting to enhance technology development and cross-cultural exchange of information. 47

Jeanette Villanueva Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in Migraine: The Role of Excitation and Inhibition Room Blue In this study we investigated whether there are any differences in the concentration of metabolites between migraine patients and healthy controls. Moreover, if such a difference was evident, it was also assessed whether a prediction of a migraine attack was possible on the basis of metabolite concentrations. We used magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to assess the concentrations of the most important inhibitory metabolite (GABA) and the most important excitatory metabolite (Gluta-


mate) in three distinct brain regions known to be important in pain and migraine (the anterior cingulate cortex, the occipital cortex and the right insula). The group of migraine patients was further divided into the four most common subtypes of migraine with respect to the presence of aura (migraine with aura or without aura) and with respect to the frequency of migraine attacks (chronic and episodic migraine). This lecture will give an overview over the study and the results.

Sunday 14:30-16:00 closing lecture

Dr. Dania Schiftan

Sexuality - an easy thing? Room Green Sexual behaviour of women and men is very different; nevertheless, they have similar dreams and desires. Playing with these differences leads to mutual inspiration. The key to erotic lies in seeing women and men in their own attractive way. Most people say they know how it works. And yet many people are unsure if they do it right. Actually, sex is an easy thing we

do not have to learn at school. But online portals and magazines are full with uncertainties around sexuality: That‘s why, in this lecture, questions you always wanted to have an answer to will be answered. You have the possibility to turn in questions that pop up in your mind anonymously during the whole event and Mrs. Schiftan will give you the solution in her lecture.

With a PhD in Clinical Sexology, Dania Schiftan works as licensed psychotherapist and sexual therapist at ZiSMed in Zürich (Switzerland). She is also known as an expert in questions around sexuality and relationships at «TV Joiz» and «Radio 1».
