Online Therapy: Balancing Reparenting and Empathic Confrontation in a Dynamic and Safe Way  

with Eckhard Roediger

Includes LIVE Questions and Answers

Balancing Limited Reparenting with Empathic Confrontation is one of the key concepts of Schematherapy and a significant contribution to behavior therapy in general. Using multiple chairs to sort parts of the client´s self out in order to work with them separately plays an important role in managing the therapy process. Working online makes chair dialogues more difficult and there is a certain inclination to end up in a “comfort zone” working face-to-face. This lecture first offers a clear conceptual framework of the therapy relationship and gives practical advice how to apply reparenting and empathic confrontation from an observer stance as well as on the chairs. The goal is keeping the intensity of the emotional work high and under a safe control at the same time under online conditions.
