This workshop provides training in using Schema therapy for people who present with complex issues, relationship problems and personality disorders. It focuses on the use of the trait model. In the workshop you will learn how to identify key processes that maintain client’s difficulties. How to formulate client issues in Schema terms and communicating this to the client. It also focuses on the teaching and practising of experiential techniques and the concept of limited re-parenting in the therapy relationship.
This workshop is intended for people who are familiar and practice Schema Therapy. Rather than a focus on the trait model, in this workshop the focus is on the Schema mode model. This is particularly suitable for clients with high levels of emotional dysregulation.
This third workshop completes the certification requirements for the International Society of Schema Therapy and looks at the applications of Schema Therapy to special populations. Some examples of these are dysthymic disorder, use of Schema Therapy in groups, and use of Schema Therapy for particular personality disorders.
