This new case conceptualization in schema therapy provides a visual mode map drawing, created collaboratively by the therapist and the client. This conceptualization specifies the client's presenting problems and their connections to the origins and the mechanisms maintain them by drawing a mode map.
Collaboratively with the client each mode characteristics are explored and written on the board under a circle representing its dominance. Arrows are drawn between the different modes to illustrate their interrelations.
Finally, by asking the client guided questions, the therapist elicits the mode changes that need to take place as therapy progresses and draws the therapy plan on the mode map.
This new visual conceptualization tries to make schema therapy psychoeducation and conceptualization communicative, simple yet comprehensive. It also includes a new way of drawing collaboratively the therapy plan on the board.
During the world pandemic time of COVID-19, this new case conceptualization is implemented very easily via online communication as well. Clients find this conceptualization very moving and see it as a turning point in the therapy course both online and in person meeting.
