SATURDAY MORNING ROUND TABLE 2 (S1RT2): 10.30 AM - 12.00 PM

Gender Differences in Mode Work in Forensic Settings

by Chris Harrop, Tanya Petersen, and Claire Gately



Abstract:

Drs Chris Harrop, Tanya Petersen, and Claire Gately (clinical psychologists) will each describe a case in which they have applied schema therapy (ST) with a woman in a secure mental health setting. As well as now working in women's services, Drs Harrop, Petersen and Gately have all worked for many years with adult men in secure mental health settings. During their years in secure male services, they all used schema therapy to underpin their work. Through the case presentations they will explore:

a. Whether there are differences between women and men in forensic settings. For example, different underlying EMSs, different manifestations of schema modes.
b. If and how these differences impact upon the therapeutic relationship and therefore, how ST techniques are used.

Expected Points of Discussion: 

  1.  Whether there are differences between women and men in forensic settings. For example, different underlying

    EMSs, different manifestations of schema modes.

  2.  If and how these differences impact upon the therapeutic relationship and therefore, how ST

    techniques are used.
