Zoran Vargović, dr. sc.

The first long-term therapeutic education I did in Germany for a systemic therapist and bodywork therapist from 1991 to 1994.

Part of my master's study in the area of marriage and family counseling I spent in the United States through the year 2001.

Through the years 2001-2004 I completed a two-year training for family counselor organized by the German "Renovabis" and the Croatian "Caritas".

In Dubrovnik and Opatija I completed the first part of basic training (2004) in sexual therapy.

Professional training for "Psychosocial Treatment of Domestic Violence" I ended up in 2008 with the organization "Society for Psychological Assistance" from Zagreb.

During the course of 2011 I attended training in Hypnosis under the "International Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy School" in Zagreb.

During 2014 I was awarded the "European Certificate of Psychotherapy" (ECP).

Narrative Therapy training I attended in Melbourne and Adelaide, Australia (2014-2015) where in Melbourne I also completed my PhD with the topic about application of Narrative Therapy in specific contexts (2017).

In the year 2017 I also went through training for trauma work using the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) method.

In the year 2018 I went to education for "psychotherapy in three" for the work with refugees who, in case of therapeutic conversation, have a need for a translator.
