Introduction to Schema Therapy - Two day Workshop

Format Workshop
Presenters Dr Mari Molloy
Description Introduction to Schema Therapy - Two day Workshop

Schema therapy is particularly well-suited for difficult, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological disorders, including personality disorders (such as Borderline Personality Disorder and narcissism), eating disorders, intractable couple's problems, and criminal offenders. It is also effective for relapse prevention in depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.

Schema therapy is an innovative, integrated therapeutic approach, originally developed as an expansion of traditional cognitive-behavioural treatments. The schema approach draws from cognitive-behavioural therapy, attachment theory, psychodynamic concepts, and emotion-focused therapies.

In comparison to cognitive-behavioural therapy, schema therapy emphasises lifelong patterns, affective change techniques, and the therapeutic relationship, with special emphasis on limited reparenting.

The workshop will cover theoretical issues and background however, the focus will be predominantly on practical skills associated with schema-focussed work.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained knowledge in:

- Schema Therapy, including theory and background
- The goals of Schema Therapy
- The basis of Schema Therapy for treating and managing complex clients
- When to use Schema Therapy and why
- Practical techniques for how to effectively apply Schema Therapy
