SKILL CLASS 17 | DAY 2: 4.15 PM - 5.45 PM
How Dysfunctional Modes Mess Up Your Sexuality
by Wiesette Krol and Judith van Hommerig
Schema therapy is all about the interaction between temperament, upbringing and (traumatic) experiences in the family and or the environment / at school. Schemas emerge because of the lack of fulfilling the basic needs. The literature describes schemas, coping and modes, but not sexuality. It is our experience that this theme is important in therapy and essential to elaborate. Sexuality is all about self-esteem, fear of rejection and abandonment, identity, intimacy, and distance. When we talk about sexuality in therapy, we learn more about the core themes of the patient, his schemas, and modes. How can you bring this subject up in therapy? Is it possible to use ST language? Which exercises can you use? In this skills class, we will teach you to be comfortable talking about this subject.
