    "A designer knows he (or she) has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." 

    Does Antoine de Saint-Exupery's definition of engineering excellence apply to schema therapy?

    PLENARY PANEL
     
    INSPIRE 2016 FEATURE
     

    "Schemas versus modes: is it really a contest?"


    Moderator: Wendy Behary

    Presenters: Jeff Young, Joan Farrell, David Bernstein, Jeff Conway and Cathy Flanagan

     

    We know that from its inception the concept of the schema, a deeply entrenched pattern that is experienced cognitively, emotionally, and somatically, has been central to the schema therapy model. However, as the model has evolved, the status of Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMS) has changed, and some would suggest, diminished, as mode work has become a more dominant aspect of schema therapy. This panel discussion will consider the history of the model and EMS, as well as the development of modes and the interaction of EMS and modes. 

    It is widely believed and accepted in the schema therapy community that modes have become the best way to understand and treat someone with a characterological disorder. In fact, mode work has promoted meaningful breakthroughs with very challenging cases. However, it has left some to wonder about the value and usefulness of EMS in the treatment room. The question remains: is it therefore still necessary to consider schemas when treating someone, or in fact, have schemas become "out-moded?" This panel intends to grapple with this question. 

    One side of the debate contends that EMS remain an essential part of the therapeutic collaboration for schema healing. The other side of the debate will contend that EMS are not as essential as they once were, and therefore should be limited to the assessment phase, while the most important work lies in identifying and addressing mode shifts and mode adaptations.

    If you're enrolled on the ISST website, you can relive the moment in Vienna.

    JEFF YOUNG
     
    WELCOME ADDRESS
     
    Jeff Young, the founder of Schema Therapy, presents his welcome address for INSPIRE 2016 at the ISST Vienna World Conference. Dr. Young describes an expansion of the schema therapy model in a way that integrates both schemas and modes. He uses the General Adaptation Syndrome, developed by Nobel Prize nominee Hans Selye, to describe how the body fights to maintain homeostasis, but when overwhelmed, deteriorates.

    Dr. Young discusses ways in which our core needs may be unmet, and provides antidotes through schema therapy, using a framework that integrates schemas and modes, into a model that promotes emotional and physical homeostasis.

    Join us in Barcelona

    Barcelona, home of the 2017 ISST Summer School, is a city proud of its cultural past, and confident about its future. It is an unrivaled visitor destination, with dazzling art and architecture, world-renowned cuisine, amazing weather, and warm hospitality. On the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona boasts one of the best-preserved medieval quarters in Europe, and the finest collection of Modernista architecture anywhere in the world.
     
    With a new airport terminal and a new high-speed train connection between major European cities, Barcelona is easy to access from most major transportation hubs. Choices will satiate all of your senses, with historical landmarks, parks, museums, and beaches to satisfy. Tour the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Parc Güell, and see the city’s most iconic building, the Sagrada Familia, followed by the Musey Picasso, housed in five interconnected Gothic palaces. So much more awaits you in a city where you will want to linger over a coffee in a medieval square, or relax in a magnificent park or a Montjuïc garden.

    Jordi Cid, our local contact member in Barcelona, has been working hard to help locate an ideal venue. Joan Farrell, our Executive Board Training & Certification Coordinator, is drafting the workshop proposals and content. Eckhard Roediger, our out-going Executive Board President and Treasurer-elect, is working on the financial details and practical matters. Together with the rest of the Executive Board, we will put together a summer school program to delight your curiosity for learning, connecting, and exploring with your fellow schema therapy colleagues.

    We invite you to watch our promotion video, sign-up for our Barcelona interest email list, and to join us next summer in Barcelona to Learn + Connect + Explore!

    "Self-States: What They Are, What They Aren't"

    Watch the entire keynote address by Richard Chefetz 

    What are "self-states" and how are they related to modes? The latest and perhaps most useful iteration of a long line of references to compartmentalized and otherwise isolated aspects of the human mind, "self-states" are implicated when people think, speak, or act in ways that are at odds with how they usually are. For instance: 

    “I don’t know what got into me to say that! I’m so sorry. I couldn’t help it. I’m so ashamed.”

    This is a common exclamation we hear coming from our own mouths and those of our patients when self-states are activated. Self-states are especially relevant when working with eating disorders, sexual acting-out, all manner of addictive behaviors, post-traumatic disorders, complex PTSD, and the dissociative disorders. 

    Borrowing from Self Psychology, Object Relations, Relational Psychoanalysis, Attachment Theory, Affect Theory, and Traumatology, Richard Chefetz presents an integrated model for understanding self-state organization and activity on a subjective level that has immediate applicability to everyday clinical work, and can be used to expand our work with modes.

    The schema therapy mode model: scientific foundations and clinical practice

    Watch the entire keynote address by Arnoud Arntz.

    What is it with modes? For many reasons, the schema therapy model that has become most prominent is based on the schema mode model. Perhaps this predominance stems from the schema mode model being easier for many patients to understand, and easier for therapists to apply. A key question in an evidence-based environment is, to what degree is the schema mode model scientifically supported?

    In his keynote address opening the INSPIRE 2016 ISST Vienna Conference, Arnoud Arntz discusses the scientific foundation of the schema mode model, as well as what we know from research about the mode model's helpfulness in clinical practice.

    "From what you see to what you need: towards an Interpersonal Schema Therapy" 

    Keynote by Eckhard Roediger 

    Modes are basically regarded as what we see. But behind the executed behavior, there is a layer of internal motivational processes. While more emotionally unstable patients express their mode activations quite directly, people with more prefrontal control might perceive modes as internal activations that are not necessarily acted out visibly. When we include "backstage" activations in interpersonal relationships within an extended schema-mode model, we understand mode clashes by referring to basic emotions caused by core needs that are unfulfilled. Guided by our Healthy Adult mode that expresses core needs in a balanced way, interpersonal conflicts can more effectively be resolved.
