This article outlines which advantages and disadvantages of the current psychotherapy training reform are particularly significant for students. Current students are in a transition period between the old and new systems, characterized by uncertainty and pressure. The transition period within which a final degree must be obtained in the old system, creates enormous time pressure. Many of the concrete features and associated consequences of the new system are not yet foreseeable. One advantage already is that the status under social law will be secured; however, students are under earlier pressure to decide on a specific professional field. Also, the hope of an adequate rather than the previously precarious payment during training does not seem to be sufficiently fulfilled. In previous psychology studies, of the psychotherapeutic methods recognized by the scientific advisory board, only cognitive behavioral therapy is appropriately and expertly taught, whereas the other methods are barely taught or in a devalued manner. While the reform basically takes into account the diversity of methods and thus remedies this shortcoming, the legal anchoring of “expert” teaching of all guideline procedures, which is crucial for high-quality studies, is missing. Overall, the reform is both an opportunity for high-quality psychotherapeutic training in a demanding profession and an obstacle for students who are already burdened by high study requirements.
