About this event

Focus on Children & Adolescents (First 5 days)

The workshop illustrates the formation and perpetuating model of maladaptive schemas against the background of age-specific developmental tasks, risk and protective temperamental factors. Relative to the children’s age, early maladaptive schemas described by Young are outlined with their typical child and adolescent appearance and coping strategies. Other topics include the multimodal diagnostic techniques (use of exploration, survey, imagery, case conceptualization) and explain the significance of the therapeutic relationship, psychoeducation and empathic confrontation.

Focus on Parents & Schema-Coaching, Case Conceptualization, and Play Therapy (Second 5 days)

The focus will be laid on the features of the work with parents (“Schema Coaching for Parents”), including psychoeducation, work with chairs, mode flash card, internal dialogue and imagery. Another goal of this workshop is to apply the schematic therapeutic approaches to their own cases. After the case presentation in the plenary, participants work out in small groups, the schema therapeutic case concept and treatment plan of this patient and their family. Based on already implemented schematic therapeutic treatment, techniques progress and problems in the used interventions are discussed. In the last unit participants will learn, how to work with the "Inner House", and to follow the schema therapeutic approaches in the context of Play Therapy (preschool and primary school age).


Dr. Christof Loose, PhD, is affiliated with the Institute of Experimental Psychology within the Department of Clinical Psychology of the University of Düsseldorf, Germany, and he also conducts his private practice in Dusseldorf. Dr. Loose is a therapist certified in Schema Therapy for children and adolescents (ST-CA) and chaired the Working Group on ST-CA internally of the ISST (International Society of Schema Therapy) from 2012-2107.

He has also published and authored several self-study books and videos on ST-CA in Germany. Dr. Loose continues to hold seminars and lessons on ST-CA around the world and we are honoured to invite him to Singapore where his skills and training will be of immense benefit to therapists working with children and adolescent populations.

Dr Loose is native German but will present in fluent English.
