Day 2: Treating PTSD During COVID-19 with Schema Therapy

2.30 - 3.00 pm

Central European Time

Presented by Samantha Flores and Jordi Cid 


This is a female with a history of vunerability to harm + negativism/pessimism,  as well as abandonment. She had been in therapy for some months previous to the coronavirus outburst.

In the face of the ongoing traumatic stress we are all suffering, she has the added risk for vicariuos traumatization. She has begun to avoid her schema activation  mostly through dissociation while working with clients at the hospital. At times she gets over-controller and turns into a bully. At home she is demanding lots of care demonstrations and gets into the vulnerable child easily to later activate the angry child, she disconnects and gets into a detached protector or overcompensates through bullying the husband for small things related to "care and wellbeing" when "he is not doing enough to care for her and endangers her in the face of coronavirus"

We have turned to work in preventing a PTSD to develop since her underlying schemas and the coping mechanisms she is using have being described as vulnerability factors. We have been working with blended strategies for coping with ongoing traumatic stress plus schema therapy techniques, mainly mode work.
