1.       Official Opening of our Clinic

The IPP German Clinic for Psychotherapy has been working (with permission) since January, but we formally and officially opened our doors from March 1, 2021.

On Thursday, February 25, 2021 we hosted our Opening Ceremony on the Clinic premises. It was attended by speakers on Zoom  from the German government and the German faculty of the IPP. It was attended in person by representatives of the Presidency of the University of Duhok (UoD) and from the KRG directorates and ministeries.

The speakers were: 

-          Mrs. Schopper Minister of State of Baden-Wurttemberg

-          Prof. Dr. Jan Kizilhan, Dean IPP

-          Dr. Martin Hautzinger, U. of Tuebingen

-          Dr. Ahmed, Vice-President UoD

-          Dr. Afrasiab, Director-General of Health

-          Mr. Ali Tater, Governor of Duhok

-          Dr. Fatah, Minister of Higher Education

-          Ms. Terry Porsild, Head of Clinic

 Of course our Acting Dean, Dr. Mamou Othman also spoke, and was the master of ceremonies. Various media outlets were also present.

The cake was cut by the Minister of HIgher Education and the governor of Duhok.

Although the Clinic is small, we gave everyone a tour of our therapy rooms, and at the end of the speeches we invited everyone to participate in a demonstration of a psychotherapy technique called Progressive Relaxation.

When it came time for refreshments, we found that the students from the College had eaten them all, while we were relaxing. We are sure they enjoyed them very much!
