We will be showing you our dynamic approach to Schema Therapy. Be actively involved as you learn. Plenty of experiential exercises in addition to learning about assessment and case conceptualisation of complex issues. We will enable you to use an emotions focused approach in working with the therapeutic relationship and to use cognitive and behavioural techniques.
We value personal attention as well as an active but also safe practice environment. Learn about the practicalities of Schema Therapy and familiarise yourself with key core emotional needs and how to use these in treament and the therapeutic relationship.
We promote an active way of learning. You will be working with two trainers. Learning to connect, give direction and set boundaries. Prepare to engage your client in this dynamic therapy.
Who is this for?
Mental health specialists (clinical/counselling psychologists, psychotherapists, CBT therapists, psychiatrists) who are interested in SchemaTtherapy and work with patients with personality disorders or chronic and severe psychological problems.
