Section Head: Heidi Rotteneder
Years ago, as a first step, the IGGT created the opportunity for people working in the field of garden therapy to register with the IGGT in accordance with their basic education, continuing education and practical experience.
There is also the option of registering as a garden therapist (according to IGGT) and as a garden therapeutic assistant (according to IGGT). This has already ensured clarity and transparency with regard to the terms "garden therapist". At the same time, this registration is an important instrument for quality assuranceTherefore, the section continuously develops and updates the necessary guidelines and principles. The focus is also on a screening and assessment of the existing European continuing and advanced education offers.
In this sense, this section works in particular to further develop garden therapy in a quality-oriented manner in the future.
