"breakthroughs with extremely challenging and impossible cases: finding new leverage" 

 WORKSHOP BY george lockwood

This workshop will demonstrate and provide opportunities for discussion and practice of a range of recent advances in Schema Therapy theory and technique. These include working systemically; a fuller understanding of temperament that allows for greater empathy and a deeper understanding of modes; knowing how to use play to reassure and bypass an extremely strong detached and angry protector mode; adding more loving, upbeat and positive approaches to limit setting that go beyond empathic confrontation; expanding Schema Therapies integrative reach by working more holistically; a Schema Therapy approach to teaching our patients how to be better parents; adding the use of limited parenting to limited reparenting; and the use of newly developed instruments, the Young Adaptive/Maladaptive Parenting Inventory (YAMPI) and Young Adaptive/Maladaptive Schema Questionnaire (YAMSQ), that systematically identify strengths and as well as weaknesses in order to more fully leverage strengths. These advances will be discussed in the context of the newly emerging field of Positive Clinical Psychology. Video taped examples and role play exercises will be provided.

  • Apply a mode based approach to working systemically; 
  • Incorporate a fuller understanding of temperament to deepen empathic attunement and develop a more refined understanding of modes 
  • Use play to reassure and bypass a powerful detached or angry protector mode; 
  • Know a positive alternative to empathic confrontation; 
  • Use the latest research on mind-body-spirit connections as a solid base for working holistically; 
  • More fully average a patient's strengths 

The workshop is intended for: Beginners and Advanced
