Creative Techniques in Schema Therapy 

with Christian Ferreira de Vasconcellos

In this presentation a few short and very effective creative techniques will be presented, including creative use of material, e.g.:

- Stamping critique sentences

- Use of hand puppets

- Psychoeducation by means of turning dolls

The techniques and material are introduced and then demonstrated in a role play with a patient actor.

The experience-based and experience-oriented techniques support emotional activation in therapy and thus facilitate therapy enormously.
