Day 1: Improving Outcomes with Effective Conceptualization

6.00 - 7.00 pm

Central European Time

Presented by Itay Susanne Vind and Jeff Young


The therapeutic relationship and change techniques in schema therapy are extremely efficient. They can work almost like psychotherapeutic surgery when applied precisely. Profound understanding of the client is the key to “get” & tune into the client’s current mode, its trigger and the specific schemas, core needs and background relating to it. When schema therapy is synchronized to this deep level of comprehending the client, then schema therapy is most efficient and gratifying for both the client and the therapist. The workshop will include a practical and experiential approach, demonstrations, clinical discussions and training.
