 WORKSHOP BY eelco muste, nynke tuin, greta gÜnther & Connie van mook 

- Watch the "Sneak Peak" with Eelco Muste below -

Imagery with Rescripting is one of the most powerful experiential tools to meet and heal the Vulnerable Child and strengthen the Healthy Adult mode. In this workshop you learn how to apply rescripting throughout multiple disciplines and how rescripting can be done, besides psychotherapy, in ‘nonverbal’ therapy (psychomotor, drama and art therapy) and sociotherapy. We will also discuss and practice with some difficulties such as interfering modes during rescripting.

The Unit Schema Therapy of ‘De Viersprong’ (by ISST certificated) integrates schema and mode oriented approaches and is conducted by a multidisciplinary team. Imagery rescripting is used in Group Schema Therapy, and rescripting is also applied throughout the whole programm by all disciplines. Every discipline aims, in different ways, to connect with the pain from the Vulnerable Child mode and helps the patient to develop their own Good Parent and Healthy Adult mode. While doing this, a combination of techniques is used and rescripting is done in vitro and in vivo. It focuses as well on experiences from the past as experiences in the here and now. In this workshop case studies and interviews with patients will be used, as well as (experiential) exercises from our daily practice. Patient’s art-work series “House of parents” will be elaborated as case examples to explore how art-work is used as starting point for rescripting. ‘Historical Mode Tableau’ will be introduced as a combination of drama therapy and Mode Role Play. Hazards and difficulties will be discussed and practiced, for example how to cope with situations wherein punitive or detached modes pop up.
