The Szondi Institute in Zurich was founded by Leopold Szondi in 1969 and is dedicated to the education of psychologists in the psychoanalytical therapeutic approach of “Fate Analysis”, to the further dissemination of knowledge on fate analysis, and to fate-analytical research.
The Szondi Institute offers education at three levels: therapeutic education for psychologists, counselling and applied fate analysis, as well as further education in Szondi test diagnosis.
Fate analysis builds and expands on the depth-psychological concept of psychoanalysis. It works on the realisation that essential psychological conditions of individual existence are predetermined by the family heritage.
The fate analysis developed by Leopold Szondi [45 KB] falls under the field of depth psychology. The observation of unconscious motives plays a crucial role in both its theoretical reflections and its diagnostic-therapeutic approach.
