    Training in Schema Therapy per le coppie

    Guarire una relazione: coinvolgere il partner nel percorso in Schema Therapy e lavorare con la coppia

    Il modello della Schema Therapy illustra in che modo i bisogni primari non soddisfatti determinano la formazione di schemi maladattivi e di comportamenti di coping. Sfortunatamente, la “chimica” tra gli schemi svolge un ruolo importante nella scelta del partner. Finiamo così per trovarci a interpretare quegli stessi ruoli complementari a cui ci eravamo abituati durante l’infanzia; di conseguenza, ci scontriamo con il partner “associandolo a quelli che, in passato, erano i nostri altri signi cativi” i “pulsanti emotivi” di ognuno vengono premuti reciprocamente, dando luogo a un’escalation del ciclo dei mode.

    Diversamente da molti altri approcci di terapia di coppia, la Schema Therapy non implica unicamente il lavoro con la coppia, ma prevede anche una serie di sedute individuali nell’ambito di un programma di trattamento speci co per ciascun partner. Ma non è tutto: è altresì possibile iniziare a lavorare

    con un unico partner per poi coinvolgere l’altro in un momento successivo, in misura più o meno limitata. Molti dei pazienti che seguiamo individualmente sono, infatti, parte di una coppia: includere il partner all’interno del percorso terapeutico comincia nel momento stesso in cui al paziente viene chiesto di pensare a lui/lei durante la terapia. La Schema Therapy è molto essibile a tal riguardo. Tuttavia, creare un equilibrio tra le diverse relazioni è una questione spinosa. Il training affronta entrambi gli scenari possibili: iniziare con un solo partner e coinvolgere l’altro successivamente o iniziare a lavorare con la coppia sin dal principio. 

    I diversi moduli del training forniranno un quadro teorico e, grazie all’utilizzo di slide, video e dimostrazioni dal vivo, consentiranno ai partecipanti di comprendere il funzionamento del ciclo dei mode, nonché di analizzare le strategie mirate a cambiarlo, mediante il soddisfacimento dei bisogni primari frustrati, la riconnessione emotiva attraverso le tecniche immaginative e il dialogo tra i mode dell’Adulto Sano di ciascun partner. Attraverso una serie di esercizi di role-playing diadico sarà inoltre possibile imparare a riconoscere i diversi cicli dei mode, i dialoghi tra gli schemi e tra i mode, nonché apprendere l’utilizzo di dialoghi con le sedie volti a chiarire e porre ne alla comunicazione disfunzionale, rendendola funzionale. I tre moduli permetteranno ai partecipanti di acquisire i contenuti del percorso didattico in Schema Therapy per le coppie necessari per ottenere la certi cazione standard.

    Schema Therapy for Children & Adolescents

     (ST-CA)


    Tehran, Iran

    20th of October 2017

    Presented by 


    Christof Loose, PhD

    Please contact Dr. Amir Askari for details by emailing: dramiraskari@casmh.org

    LANGUAGE: English with Farsi translation

    Schema Therapy (ST) developed by Jeffrey Young is an enhancement and development of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and particularly integrates emotions, but also developmental aspects centrally in their diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. In addition, ST is based on a model of schemas, modes and the basic needs and "their fate" during the life course. Therefore, ST - in terms of technical and strategic variant of CBT – seems to be also and especially in the field of child and adolescent therapy particularly suited to generate action-guiding, diagnostic and therapeutic concepts.


    The St-CA concept was developed by a German working group around Christof Loose, Peter Graaf und Gerhard Zarbock.

    The workshop illuminates the formation and perpetuating model of maladaptive schemas. Related to the children’s age few examples of the 18 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, case conceptualization) and explain the significance of the therapeutic relationship, psychoeducation and empathic confrontation.

    As an overview therapeutic strategies are demonstrated: Working with drawings and pictures, working with finger and hand puppets, metaphors, chair work, mode-based play therapy, imagery, and the use of audio flash cards.

    An additional part of the workshop is the work with parents, called “Schema-Coaching for Parents”, which is also outlined in an overview.

    Beside the introductory in schema theory the workshop offers practical demonstrations by picture and video material, and small exercises allow the participants transferring the content into their own practice.

    This is the first workshop in ST-CA in Iran, organized by Dr. Amir Askari, Center for Advanced Studies in Mental Health, Tehran, Iran.

    Disarming the Narcissist
    PESI / San Francisco and Sacramento, October 24th, 25th 2017 by Wendy Behary

    Narcissistic clients can be your most challenging clients.

    This seminar will show you how to move past the narcissist’s defenses to gain and maintain leverage in therapy, avoid power struggles and help the client begin to understand his or her own behavior and its impact on other people. You will learn to change lifelong emotional and behavioral patterns through cognitive restructuring, attachment and re-parenting work, behavioral-skills training, and experiential techniques. Learn to assess your client’s hot buttons and manage triggered reactions like aggression and attachment.

    Expert clinician and best selling author Wendy Behary, will help you understand the narcissist’s view of world, how to navigate their coping styles, and why, underneath their seemingly tough bravado, narcissist’s have issues of inadequacy, intolerable shame, sadness and loneliness. This understanding will allow you to set limits with your narcissistic client, and recognize, relevant to the treatment goals, when it’s time to draw the line on unacceptable behavior.

    Objectives:

    1. Simulate specific clinical strategies to apply with narcissistic clients. 
    2. Integrate concepts from interpersonal neurobiology as powerful tools for accelerating treatment effectiveness. 
    3. Explore personal schemas and modes – a major obstacle to treatment. 
    4. Utilize self-work to bypass intense personal triggers activated by the narcissist. 
    5. Create and adapt custom-fitting scripts to utilize “empathic confrontation” and to set limits. 
    6. Utilize the “Therapy Relationship” as an effective strategy for changing maladaptive reactions; and as powerful agent for change – generalizing newly adapted behaviors from the treatment room to the narcissist’s world.

    Workshop 1:  3 Day Introduction to Group Schema Therapy:The Model and Method

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Ida Shaw, M.A. & Rita Younan, Ph.D.

    Schema Therapy Institute Australia

    Group Schema Therapy was developed by Farrell & Shaw (1994, 2012). The GST model integrates their original group work with Young’s individual Schema Therapy (ST)(2003) & the ST outcome research of Arntz (2009).  GST strategically uses the therapeutic factors of the group modality to catalyze the work of schema mode change. GST is a unique approach to ST that goes far beyond traditional group therapy models; furthermore, it does not simply incorporate individual ST interventions into a group format, rather, has developed new adaptations of ST interventions for the group modality. The central idea behind GST is that the group members, with the guidance of the therapists, create their own “family” in which they add sibling socialization to the reparenting the therapists provide. As part of this group corrective emotional process patients do imagery and roleplaying exercises in which they take on the roles of each group member’s various modes (e.g., the Detached Protector, the Healthy Adult, Punitive Parent) and ultimately heal them.  The experience of ST in a supportive, validating group can directly impact and heal key schemas such as, abandonment, defectiveness, emotional deprivation, social isolation and mistrust/abuse. Like individual ST, GST improves: stability of self, interpersonal relationships, social, family, and occupational functioning and quality of life. There is considerable research now supporting the effectiveness of the GST approach, including empirical validation from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) (Farrell & Shaw, 2009) and pilot studies conducted in the US, the Netherlands and in Germany (Reiss, Lieb, Arntz, Shaw & Farrell, 2013). These studies demonstrated very large positive effects from even a short group treatment of thirty sessions.

    GST was developed with BPD patients but like individual ST it is trans-diagnostic and adaptable to other personality disorders, complex trauma and other challenging populations as well as entrenched maladaptive schema and mode effects in any patients. The mode approach is an advantage of ST in the uncertain diagnostic time of DSMV.

    This 3 day workshop on the basics of Group Schema Therapy counts towards certification in Group Schema Therapy with the International Society for Schema Therapy. It is part of the ISST approved GST Certification programs of the STI Midwest-Indianapolis and of the STI Australia. Standard level Certification includes 20 hours of supervision. Workshop attendees are given priority in scheduling supervision with the trainers. For costs and other information visit the website for Schema Therapy Institute Australia.

    Day 1: Fine-Tuning Imagery Rescripting: Together with Chris Hayes, Remco recorded video tapes with details how to apply Imagery Rescripting in various settings. They serve as a gold standard in this field. Both offered a workshop at the ISST-conference in Vienna that got the best feedback of all presented workshops. This is the first time Remco presents his skills in Germany, so don´t miss him!

    Day 2: Fine-tuning Mode Dialogues on Chairs: Beside Imagery Rescripting, Mode dialogues are the second major experiential technique used in Schematherapy. While Imagery works with the memories of interpersonal situations, Mode dialogues on multiple chairs enable us to lay out the inner world of a patient in the room, re-externalize self-representations and work with them. Enrolling into these two workshop days you will get an update on both techniques fueling your practical skills.

    Remco van de Vijngaart works as a psychotherapist in an outpatient clinic in Maastricht (NL) and is currently the Vice-President of the ISST. He offers workshops in many countries.

    Workshop 2:  Group Schema Therapy: Advanced Modules: Child Modes, Coping Modes, Critic Modes and the Healthy Modes

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Ida Shaw, M.A. & Rita Younan, Ph.D.

    Schema Therapy Institute Australia, 18 Credit hours

    This Advanced Master Class is intended for participants who have completed the Introduction to Group ST. It fulfills the advanced level training requirement for certification in Group ST by the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST). Each six hour training day fulfills one of the module requirements for certification. Module one focuses on interventions to get through the Maladaptive Coping Modes: including the avoidant and overcompensating modes and mastery of group empathic confrontation interventions. Module two focuses on interventions for the Dysfunctional Parent modes and accessing the Healthy Adult mode. Module three focuses on interventions to reach and heal the Child Schema Modes including group imagery rescripting, playful interventions and limited reparenting by child mode. Each module consists of equal parts of didactic with demonstration and practice with observation and coaching. Although the interventions are discussed in terms of their application in Group ST, many are just as applicable to individual and participants report their effectiveness in their individual as well as group work. 

     Their second book The Schema Therapy Clinician’s Guide, Wiley 2014 provides an entire program of group and individual ST that is appropriate for brief 10-20 sessions or longer (1 year) outpatient and more intensive programs like inpatient and day therapy. It includes therapist scripts and handouts for 42 group sessions and 12 individual sessions. This ST program is adaptable for a variety of lengths and is transdiagnostic.

    This workshop is the Advanced level curriculum for ISST certification in Group Schema Therapy. You will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion that can be used in the documentation required for that certification. The training is part of the ISST approved GST Certification programs of the STI Midwest-Indianapolis and of the STI Australia. Advanced level Certification requires the Intro workshop, these 3 days and 20 additional hours of supervision. 

    Workshop attendees are given priority in scheduling supervision with the trainers.For more information visit the Schema Therapy Institute Australia website.

    SCHEMA THERAPY INSTITUTE AUSTRALIA PRESENTS: A SELF-PRACTICE/SELF-REFLECTION WEEKEND RETREAT

    Sorry, Sold out

    WITH JOAN FARRELL, Ph.D & IDA SHAW, M.A. Schema Therapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis Center

    An important part of training for Schema Therapists is self-therapy to understand one’s own schemas and modes, the role they play in being a schema therapist and the impact of patients’ in triggering schemas and modes. Such self-awareness is critical to the genuine, open presence required by ST’s limited reparenting model; this is particularly important for therapists conducting group ST, as the impact of a number of clients at the same time can amplify therapists’ reactions and just being in a group can have triggering effects related to one’s family of origin. Self-schema therapy has personal benefits as well in terms of self-awareness and healing for one’s Vulnerable Child mode.

    Joan & Ida spent two years as members of a self-therapy for therapists in their training and consider that experience critical to their understanding of themselves, their reactions when participating in a group and what clients experience. Participation in the workshop will add new interventions to use with clients and the deeper experience of ST from the “inside – out”. They believe that what one learns from this experience cannot be taught as effectively didactically, if at all. For that reason self-therapy in a group is a requirement for ISST Group Schema Therapy certification and this workshop fulfils that requirement. It can also be used to meet the three supervision hours credit allowed to meet individual ST certification supervision requirements. This day is appropriate for therapists new to ST and for those who are experienced with it.

    Joan & Ida have facilitated self-therapy groups for over 30 years leading to their book Experiencing Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for Therapists, Guilford 2017.  The workshop begins with establishing safety and connection within the group and the agreement to keep confidential any personal material disclosed. Participants are encouraged to share as much or little content in the group as they feel comfortable with. They can choose to focus on a particular schema or mode issue that affects their personal or professional life or go into the day open to whatever experience they have. Just as they do with all groups, Joan & Ida assess the needs of the participants and plan the day’s work in collaboration with participants based upon the needs and modes present. The focus in the workshop is on experiential work including: exercises to identify maladaptive coping modes triggered in the group, awareness of the needs of your Vulnerable Child and self-care plans, further banishing work for the Demanding or Punitive Critic mode and evoking the Happy Child Mode to balance the hard work we do as therapists.

    Schema Therapy: Basics and Beyond, 2-Day Training
    Washington, DC, November 3rd and 4th, 2017 by Wendy Behary and Paul DelGrosso

    About Schema Therapy

    Schema therapy is an innovative, integrative therapeutic approach, originally developed (by Dr. Jeffrey Young) as an expansion of traditional cognitive-behavioral treatments. The schema approach draws from cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory, psychodynamic concepts, and emotion-focused therapies. In comparison to cognitive-behavioral therapy, schema therapy emphasizes lifelong patterns, affective change techniques, and the therapeutic relationship, with special emphasis on limited and adaptive re-parenting.

    Schema therapy is particularly well-suited for difficult, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological disorders, including personality disorders (such as BPD and narcissism), eating disorders, intractable relationship problems, and criminal offenders. It is also effective for relapse prevention in depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. The results of a major comparative outcome study have shown schema therapy to be highly effective with a large percentage of outpatients with Borderline Personality Disorder, with a low dropout rate. Clients who have spent years gaining valuable insight with psychodynamic treatments, but who are frustrated by their lack of progress, often respond well to the active, systematic, flexible, and depth-oriented schema approach.

    This 2-day workshop will include a combination of teaching methods, including lectures, handouts, videotapes of master schema therapists, live demonstrations, question-and-answer periods, group discussions, paired-practice, discussion of obstacles in treatment including therapist's own schemas, and small group exercises.

    About the presenters: 

    Wendy T. Behary, MSW, LCSW, is the founder and director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The New Jersey Institute for Schema Therapy. She has been treating clients, training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than 20 years.

    Paul DelGrosso is an Advanced Certified Schema Therapist with a private practice in Washington, DC. He has a varied background treating complicated trauma and and personality disorders. Paul was drawn to Schema Therapy after becoming curious about clients with hard-to-treat conditions who did not respond fully to more traditional forms of therapy. Paul has found effective results using Schema Therapy to help clients gain insight into and modify schemas and modes as well as using the transformative power of limited re-parenting in session to help clients repair unmet childhood needs -- and feel and function better in their current lives. Paul is also available to provide clinical supervision in Schema Therapy to DC area therapists who have taken workshops in ST and wish to improve their practice in ST.

    Schema Therapy: Interventions to Overcome Common Obstacles in Treating Personality Disorder

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Schema Therapy Institute Midwest, Indianapolis  

    and Nicola Kenney, MSW,  Schema Therapy Academy of Australia

    This 2-day Master Class with Joan Farrell. PhD and Nicola Kenney, MSW, is suitable for Schema Therapists at all levels and clinicians who have some knowledge and experience in using the basic schema therapy model, and want to learn more about core schema therapy interventions to work with the issues presented by clients with personality disorders (e.g. Borderline PD, Avoidant PD, Narcissistic PD) and features of these disorders. Day 1 will specifically focus on impasses with clients and day 2 on the impasses these clients present for therapists.  Participants will learn ways to identify what the impasses are and help clients work though them. Interventions will include experiential work to connect and get through the resistance of dysfunctional coping styles, imagery rescripting and storytelling to introduce the Vulnerable Child Mode and mode role plays (aka schema mode chair work).  For impasses with therapists, exercises will be used from Joan and Ida's latest book: Learning Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for therapists (Guilford, expected in Dec 2017).

    Joan and Nicola are both ISST Advanced level Trainer-Supervisors in Individual Schema Therapy. This training can be counted toward the required curriculum for ISST certification in ST. If you are in a certification program, an ISST module certificate will be issued.

    Child and Adolescent Schema Therapy Certification Curriculum Parts 1 & 2

    with Ida Shaw, Schema Therapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis

    4 days - 28 CPD hours - 24 ISST credit hours

    Child and Adolescent Schema Therapy (ST-CA) is an innovative and integrative therapy for children and adolescents that significantly expands on traditional approaches.  Schema therapy integrates Cognitive-Behavioural, Attachment, Gestalt, Object Relations, and Emotion-focused schools with the research of Developmental Psychology into a richly unifying  evidence-based treatment model.
    ST-CA involves intensive work with the child and their caregivers with the aims to:

    • distinguish the differences between maladaptive behaviours and age appropriate behaviours
    • identify and validate the emotional needs of the child and help meet their needs through strengthening attachments and building adaptive coping strategies;
    • reduce and heal early maladaptive schemas and coping strategies by a strategic integration of Cognitive, Behavioural and Experiential interventions
    • educate and support caregivers in the recognition of the effects of their own schemas and modes on the children and adolescents under their care
    • help the caregivers connect to their own happy child mode to improve connection with the child
    • develop communication skills

    In this interactive workshop you will gain both a theoretical understanding of the ST model and practical skills in the application of Schema Therapy with children, adolescents, and their families. The workshop will teach participants to design developmentally appropriate approaches to implement experiential mode work with children and adolescents, including drawing, puppets, imagery, mode dialogues, imagery rescripting and story-telling.  The  approach of ST for  engaging caregivers and wider family and educational systems in treatment is also covered.  Supervision and the rest of the C-A certification curriculum will be discussed snd arrangements made for you to work with one of the ISST approved supervisors of our programs via Skype or in person. Both individual and group supervision options are avavailable to meet the ISST requirements of 20 hours for standard level and 40 hours for advanced level certification.

    Difficult Therapy Situations - The Concept of the "Sphere of Emotional Resonance" 

    by Lukas Nissen

    Basis of this workshop is the fact that difficult therapy situations evolve, when the therapist, triggered by incidents within the therapeutic relationship, flips into a state of disintegration (maladaptive schemas and modes) and automatically/unintentionally engages in dysfunctional coping behaviour, which, in turn, amplifies dysfunctional mechanisms with the patient.

    By means of the concept of the „sphere of emotional resonance“, situations like this are analyzed and worked through with the goal of effecting a reassurance and better integration of the therapist, which allows him/her to encounter the patient in a more open way, being able again to esteem the patients needs more freely. Exercises in the sphere of emotional resonance imply mainly the mindful perception of body signals, coping mechanisms and felt threats, as well as the classification of alarm reactions within the life history.

    Another most important element of the exercises implies the compassionate validation of all the feelings and impulses that arise during the alarm reaction.

    Objectives

    • Participants will be introduced theoretically to the concept of the sphere of emotional resonance and have the occasion to work through their own difficult therapy situations by doing practical exercises.

    About the Presenter: 

    Before studying psychology and becoming a psychotherapist, Lukas Nissen absolved an acting school with the main focus on mime, body language and dance. This first formation reveals Lukas Nissen’s interest in everything that has to do with expression of feelings, intentions and thoughts through the body, an element that recurs in the development of the „sphere of emotional resonance“. Lukas Nissen works as a psychotherapist since almost 20 years, leads a curriculum for Schema Therapy in Basel, Switzerland and gives lectures and workshops in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Poland. Besides the treatment of patients, supervision and self-therapy of therapists is an important field of work for Lukas Nissen.

    Disarming the Narcissist
    PESI / Seattle, Washington, November 16th, 2017 by Wendy Behary

    Narcissistic clients can be your most challenging clients.

    This seminar will show you how to move past the narcissist’s defenses to gain and maintain leverage in therapy, avoid power struggles and help the client begin to understand his or her own behavior and its impact on other people. You will learn to change lifelong emotional and behavioral patterns through cognitive restructuring, attachment and re-parenting work, behavioral-skills training, and experiential techniques. Learn to assess your client’s hot buttons and manage triggered reactions like aggression and attachment.

    Expert clinician and best selling author Wendy Behary, will help you understand the narcissist’s view of world, how to navigate their coping styles, and why, underneath their seemingly tough bravado, narcissist’s have issues of inadequacy, intolerable shame, sadness and loneliness. This understanding will allow you to set limits with your narcissistic client, and recognize, relevant to the treatment goals, when it’s time to draw the line on unacceptable behavior.

    Objectives:

    1. Simulate specific clinical strategies to apply with narcissistic clients. 
    2. Integrate concepts from interpersonal neurobiology as powerful tools for accelerating treatment effectiveness. 
    3. Explore personal schemas and modes – a major obstacle to treatment. 
    4. Utilize self-work to bypass intense personal triggers activated by the narcissist. 
    5. Create and adapt custom-fitting scripts to utilize “empathic confrontation” and to set limits. 
    6. Utilize the “Therapy Relationship” as an effective strategy for changing maladaptive reactions; and as powerful agent for change – generalizing newly adapted behaviors from the treatment room to the narcissist’s world.


    About the presenter: 

    Wendy T. Behary, MSW, LCSW, is the founder and director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The New Jersey Institute for Schema Therapy. She has been treating clients, training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than 20 years.

    Group Schema Therapy Certification

    Trainer : Agnes SullivanSusanne Vind

    Dates : November 27th & 28th, and November 30th & December 1st 2017

    Overview and the Schema Therapy Institutes approach

    Schema Therapy is an integrative approach drawing on CBT, gestalt, psychodynamic and interpersonal therapeutic models, which places significant emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, emotional experience, and early life experiences. Often practitioners and clients embarking on Schema Therapy, opt for the intimacy of individual therapy, with its powerful focus on the therapy relationship. Nevertheless, many practitioners face obstacles in seeing Schema Therapy accepted unless limited goals are set so that Schema Therapy fits with brief treatment programmes.

    Farrell and Shaw developed a format for delivering Schema Therapy in a group setting that has been shown to be highly effective on its own, and in combination with individual Schema Therapy.  Indeed, the data seems to suggest that in some situations, Schema Therapy can work more swiftly in a group or when group therapy is added to treatment, than individual therapy alone. Groups, in their nature of being like a family, can provide a strong re-parenting vehicle to effect change in individuals with personality disorders. The group process seems to catalyse some aspects of the change process that may be slower in individual work. The intense emotional activation that is necessary for change in Schema Therapy, takes place readily in a group setting. Indeed, Group Schema Therapy treatment for drug and alcohol and other addictions is extremely effective as groups disinhibit affect, creating strong motivation for behaviour change and the strengthening of the Healthy Adult mode. Another variable directly impacting the success of treatment of personality disorders is client drop out – again, the outcomes with group Schema Therapy, is most gratifying, with drop out rates far below other group treatment approaches.

    Standard Certification Training in Group Schema Therapy (GST) will include the following modules:

     

    Module 1: Introduction to the GST model, preparing patients for group, establishing safety and connection, co-therapist limited reparenting learning the dance and signals, facilitating corrective emotional experiences, holding the frame, balancing the structure with matching patient modes in the ‘here and now’, schema education in group, mode conceptualisations. (4 didactic hours and 2 role-play hours

    Module 2: Group interventions for Maladaptive Coping modes and Healthy Adult Mode, Mode awareness and management, getting through Detached Protector Mode, empathic confrontation and limit setting for OC modes, group mode dialogues and role plays, Healthy Adult Mode, facilitating the experience of competence and self-awareness. (3 didactic hours and 3 role play hours) 

    Module 3: Group interventions for the Child Modes and Good Parent, healing VC and channeling anger of AC, limiting IC, group imagery work, anger expression/release in group and play, banishing PP and moderating DC with Good Parent component of Healthy Adult. (3 didactic hours and 3 role play hours)

    Module 4: Self therapy in group – participant opportunities to experience GST interventions themselves and practice taking the leader role with trainer coaching and feedback. (2 didactic hours and 4 role play hours)

    Please note :  Additional supervision and final tape rating is required and can be obtained from the two trainers at an additional fee.

    IDA SHAW: 

    Ida Shaw is an ISST Certified Trainer-Supervisor in ST-Child/Adolescent, Group ST and Individual ST. In the last few years attention has been paid to the specific adaptations needed to use Schema therapy, which originated for adults, effectively with the child and adolescent populations. In 2014 a specialty area in Child-Adolescent ST was recognized by the ISST. A work group that began in Germany with Christof Loose, Peter Graf, Gerhard Zarbock and Petra Baumann-Frankenberger went on to include Ida Shaw, Maria Galimzyanova, Elena Romanova and Paul Kasyanik. 

     Ida is best known for her innovative experiential work and the development of the Group Schema Therapy model, but her graduate training focused on Developmental Psychology and work with Children and adolescents. She was pulled into working with BPD in her collaboration with Joan Farrell, but after three books and 20 years of specialization and providing training she has recently returned to her roots in Child and adolescent ST. She has established an ISST Approved Certification Training Program in C/A ST at the Schema Therapy Institute Midwest-Indianapolis.

    Supervision and ratings of recorded sessions are also required for ISST certification. Contact Ida to arrange supervision - either individual or a group of colleagues.

    Schema Therapy Institute London

    This 2-day intensive workshop with the developers & authors of the two books on GST of Group Schema Therapy, is intended only for those who have completed advanced training in Group ST and are actively conducting groups. The content will be based in part, on advanced skills in GST and in part, on the complex group situations brought in by participants.

Some of the interventions included are: group imagery rescripting (including trauma), group mode dialogue roleplays, empathic confrontation, mixed groups (of all types), handling conflict and setting limits therapeutically, and a group case conceptualization.

    A 20 session protocol of basic GST will be included.

    Imagery Rescripting for Childhood Trauma & Complex PTSD

    Chris Hayes, Clinical Psychologist, ISST Supervisor/Trainer & Board Secretary 

    BPS Offices, London: 21st May 2018 (£195)

    Are you looking to increase your skills in working with childhood trauma and complex PTSD? Do you sometimes hold off using experiential techniques, such as imagery, for fear of making mistakes?

    Imagery re-scripting is a key aspect of Schema Therapy and a powerful experiential tool for cognitive and emotional change. Furthermore, research over the last 4 years has demonstrated that imagery work can be utilised as a standalone treatment for childhood trauma (Arntz, 2013).

    This day will focus on imagery rescripting to treat childhood related post-traumatic stress and complex PTSD including:

    • therapeutic underpinnings of imagery rescripting

    • providing a rationale to clients

    • the practice of imagery rescripting for childhood related trauma

    • ways to improve imagery rescripting in treatment

    • ways to bypass avoidance & other “roadblocks” to effective change

      The workshop will provide expert teaching, demonstrations and experiential exercises, allowing delegates to practice skills.

      It is aimed at clinicians who work with complex PTSD and/or personality disorders. Attendees need to be willing to complete imagery rescripting roleplay in dyads. No specific knowledge of Schema Therapy nor previous experience of imagery rescripting are required.

    Chris Hayes is a Senior Clinical Psychologist, Advanced Accredited Schema Therapist, Schema Therapy Supervisor/Trainer & Board Secretary of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST). Chris has extensive experience in public and private settings working with clients with complex psychological presentations. He was trained in Schema Therapy by Dr Jeffery Young and has also completed training in Group Schema Therapy, chair-work, time-limited Schema Therapy, and schema work with couples. He has presented workshops across Europe, Asia & Australasia, co-runs a Schema Therapy Training programme and co-produced the DVD set, ‘Fine Tuning Imagery Rescripting’ (2016, Van der Wijngaart, R., Hayes), which has been well-received around the world. Publications include Professional burnout, early maladaptive schemas, and physical health in clinical and counselling psychology trainees (2017, Kaeding, Sougleris, Reid, Vreeswijk, Hayes, Dorrian & Simpson).
