Interplay between Patient and Therapist Schemas and Mode Maps
by Galit Goren Gilad and Itay Shuv-Ami
What can we learn from the fact that different patients trigger very different modes in us?
Background Experience in the Area of the Skill Class:
Schema therapists interested in the complex interplay between the therapist's and the patient's schemas and modes.
The participants will be able to examine and conceptualize the activation of the therapist’s own schemas and modes in the therapeutic encounter.
They will learn to conceptualize these activations while taking into account the mutual influences of patient on therapist and vice versa. Finally, they will learn how these activations can potentially promote a deeper, more experiential understanding of the patient, greatly facilitating limited reparenting interventions.
Level of Experience Required for Participant:
