Event description

Description

This 3 day workshop gives you an opportunity to learn Group Schema Therapy (‘GST’) and completes the training component of the Standard level international certification in Group Schema Therapy (‘ST’) approved by International Society of Schema Therapy. No prior training in Schema Therapy is necessary. However, background reading to understand the basics is recommended..

The training presents the GST model and its core interventions. Group Schema therapy functions in the same way as individual ST – i.e. therapist limited reparenting and mode change interventions are determined by the mode a patient is in rather than by disorder. Participants play their own patients thus providing examples of using GST interventions for the presenting modes of various diagnostic groups. Core GST interventions include: group limited reparenting, group imagery re-scripting, mode-specific group role-plays, experiential group work and the distinctive two therapist model that is considered crucial for maintaining the essence of limited reparenting with the more severe disorders. These interventions can also be used in individual schema therapy and individual use is discussed based upon the interests of participants. The workshop incorporates: didactic sections with powerpoint and group discussion, demonstrations by facilitator in which the workshop participants play patients, DVD segments of the GST developers leading a group and opportunities for participants to practice interventions with coaching and feedback. The first two days are primarily didactic with numerous demonstrations of interventions with participants playing the patient group. Day three includes practice of interventions in small groups.

You will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion that can be used for ISST certification documentation in Group ST.
