Margit Epstein works as a clinical psychologist and licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Oldenburg and Berlin, Germany. In addition, she teaches as adjunct faculty at several training institutes in Germany with a focus on systemic therapy, social construction and somatic mindfulness.
She began her studies in psychology at the University of Heidelberg where she also worked as an intern at Helm Stierlin’s family therapy institute. After graduating, she did post graduate training in family therapy at the University of Texas in Austin. Then, during a fellowship at the Galveston Family Institute in Texas under the direction of Harry Goolishian, she first ran into social constructionist ideas and has been hooked ever since.
Margit has taught courses on systemic therapy and counseling as adjunct faculty at the University of Osnabrück for over 10 years.
She is interested to explore the many ways language and the construction of meanings emerge, shape and change our sense of self and our “being-bodied and gendered-in-the-world”.
As a yoga instructor, NARM therapist and a student of Zapchen somatic under the direction of Julie Henderson, she continues to explore the multiple ways bodies get constructed, and how we as bodies construct social realities.
