Coaching Qualification

Certificate training

A cooperation of the Chair of Work and Organizational Psychology at the FAU with the Systemic Transactional Analytical Institute & Practice (STIP) 


This certificate training is directed at interested graduates with a degree in psychology or education (university) and a corresponding basic psychological knowledge (clinical psychology and/or work and organizational psychology) in combination with a successful application.


The focus of this practice-oriented qualification is on coping with everyday demands, crises and personal challenges that may arise when working with people in organisations. This includes, especially for newcomers to the profession, questions of positioning within the company, clarifying one’s own goals and external tasks, initiating and designing interventions, mediation, consulting and coaching. These requirements call for a practical qualification that builds on the knowledge and skills acquired during university education and complements them in a meaningful way.


If you are interested, please apply via e-mail with a short letter of motivation and your curriculum vitae to Prof. Dr. Cornelia Niessen ( and Oliver Watzal (
