Draw your Modes! 

by Heleen Grandia


In this workshop you will learn how to draw the schema modes. Working with visuals can be a fast track to your clients feelings. Besides that, visuals can help to structure their thoughts and to give them inside in their patterns. Also, pictures are dominant over spoken words when it comes to memory, so it will speed up your clients understanding of the schema model.

Target Audience:


Learning Objectives:

What are we going to do? We start with the basic alphabet of visualizing ideas. All you need is primary school level drawing skills to participate. Please be aware: it’s not meant to be art! So don’t hesitate to join. I will demonstrate and explain what I do, and you will draw along with me. You will need pen and paper.

When you have learned the basics of how to draw ideas, we go on with emojis. In our work emotions are very important, and with a few tricks, they are very easy to draw. Body postures will help you to make a mode out of an emotion. And finally, you will be able to draw every mode you can think of.

A fun and entertaining workshop that will help you become a better therapist by using visuals to connect with your client. No preparation needed.
