In-Congress Workshop 1 | Day 1: 5.00 PM - 6.30 PM
Overcoming Therapeutic Impasses in Schema Couples Therapy Part 2
by Travis Atkinson, and Poul Perris
1. Create and maintain a secure therapeutic bond with both partners in a relationship
This skill and intervention-focused workshop will start with a brief introduction of how the schema therapy model uses mode work in love relationships to improve outcomes for even the most challenging couples. We will highlight some of the most common therapeutic impasses that occur when treating couples, focusing on how to repair ruptures. Interventions will include Connection Dialogues (CD) and Imagery Rescripting for Couples (IRC). Participants will view digital recordings of key interventions, and practice role-plays to help them overcome some of the most challenging impasses when working with couples applying the schema therapy model.
1. Assess schemas and modes of each partner in the love relationship that influence common therapeutic impasses
