He is a specialist in psychiatry/psychotherapy and in psychosomatic medicine, professor emeritus at Basel University and visiting professor at the International Psychoanalytic University (IPU) Berlin. He worked as the medical director of the department of adult psychiatry in the canton Baselland, Switzerland, from 2007 to 2018.

He has written seventeen academic books and in addition has edited twenty-four academic volumes. He has published widely, especially on psychoanalytic topics. He is especially interested in psychoanalytic transdisciplinary research, and, thus, has collaborated intensively with philosophical, cultural, and literary scholars.
