The Linz Institute for Basic and Methodological Research in Psychotherapy Science (LIGA) is a research institute of SFU’s Faculty of Psychotherapy Science and organises, documents and communicates the research achievements of the Linz Department of Psychotherapy Science. The research projects of the Institute are assigned to specific Research Labs and work towards the research foci of the Linz Department.
