About this Event

2 day course: 8th and 9th April 2021 (1pm - 9pm, to accommodate the time difference for the trainer)

Focus of the course: We are delighted to introduce a 2-day workshop on Schema Therapy for eating disorders, presented online by Dr Susan Simpson.

This workshop will provide therapists with multiple opportunities to learn complex techniques when working with this difficult to treat population. Anyone interested in knowing how to implement schema therapy using mode work, would benefit from this workshop. This advanced therapy workshop aims will train participants in powerful techniques for working with entrenched early maladaptive schemas (including core beliefs) with individuals with eating disorders. You will also have an opportunity to learn about the application of schema therapy for eating disorders in a group context.

The workshop will provide participants with practical experience and guidance in the use of imagery, chair work and other techniques for change. Videos and live demonstrations will be used to illustrate experiential change techniques. Training will specifically include working with vulnerable child modes, limited reparenting skills, bypassing avoidant or overcompensatory coping modes, and fighting punitive (self-critical) or guilt inducing thinking patterns that drive eating disorder behaviours. Participants will receive handouts that they can use in their clinical work.

14 hours of CPD
