Schema Therapy has been designed meet the challenges of treating disturbed people, including those with chronic mood disorders and personality disorders and other complex difficulties. The approach introduces the innovative ways in which Schema Therapy incorporates proven cognitive-behavioural techniques and expands on them with elements of other widely practiced therapies, emotive techniques and therapeutic relationship. Randomised trials have provided a considerable base of evidence for the effectiveness of the approach which can be incorporated into existing modes of clinical practice.
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce this therapy with a practical emphasis on learning and using experiential techniques such as schema attunement, chair-work with modes, limited re-parenting for childhood experiences and sentence completion for emotional learning. The day is broken up into four sessions in which each session will introduce a skill to be practiced by participants. Skills practice is followed by discussion of the technique and its potential clinical applications.
This workshop provides a ‘taste menu’ of what Schema Therapy can offer as a clinical resource the people you treat. Basic training in this therapy is three days, but this this one-day workshop allows you to understand the approach, use some of the most recognized therapeutic interventions and see what works for you as a therapist.
