Bypassing the Challenges in the Schema Therapy Supervisor-Role
by Jeff Young and Jeff Conway
This keynote will identify and address some of the most common challenges in Schema Therapy Supervision, including observing and understanding conditions for schema/mode activation and obstacles that arise for both the Supervisor and the Supervisee in the course of the Schema Therapy Supervision. We will also explore the various roles a Schema Therapy Supervisor can assume in order best meet the supervisory challenges and to attend to the important learning and emotional needs of the Schema Therapy Supervisee. It is hoped that this keynote will inspire participants to see typical supervisory challenges, although sometimes stressful and confusing, as opportunities for professional and personal growth that that could ultimately enhance schema therapy competence in the treatment room.
