Event description

Description

Schema Therapy has recently been adapted to treat very difficult couples where one or both have traits of personality disorder. ST has easy-to-grasp concepts, such as schemas and modes, which make sense of the couple’s past experiences, educate them, and open the door to allow them to speak freely about ways in which both can feel more connected. This 2 day workshop will include an introduction to Schema Therapy, assessment with genogram, working hot with emotional focus, inter-relationship of schemas and modes, mode mapping and Mode Cycle Clash Cards. The main techniques of visualization and chair-work are adapted to working with couples. There is a focus on dealing with affairs and the discovery of hidden learning for couples. Using ST for couples can lead to lasting change in relationships.

This accredited workshop would be useful for a range of clinical psychologists (including students), but best suited to those who have completed their basic accredited three day training in Schema Therapy.

We expect the workshop to reach full capacity so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Introduction to the language of Schema Therapy, brief review of the evidence base of effective treatment of those with a personality disorder, and other approaches to working with couples;
  2. The skill of couple assessment using a genogram and understanding ‘schema chemistry’.
  3. Working hot with schema attunement.
  4. Able to use Mode Cycle Clash-card and introduction to mapping modes to form a ST case formulation for couple issues;
  5. Practice using chair-work with modes with a focus on affairs;
  6. Begin to use visualization with care behaviours (couple homework). Implications for re-scripting childhood memories relevant to couple issues;
  7. Use of sentence completion for Hidden Learning in relationships. How hidden learning makes schema learning more specific.
