Keywords: adolescent psychiatry, systemic approach, stationary treatment


On the grounds of the author's clinical experiences concerning the implementation of systemic therapy in an adolescent psychiatry ward, and on the basis of the research literature a differentiation is made between the constructivist and holistic systemic models of inpatient psychiatric facility. Only the latter model implementation seems to be feasible in a psychiatry ward for acute cases, serving a specified catchment area.
