"Bypassing the Challenges in the Schema Therapy Supervisor Role "

by Jeff Conway & Joan Farrell

This workshop will identify and address some of the most common challenges in Schema Therapy Supervision, including observing and understanding conditions for schema/mode activation and obstacles that arise for both the Supervisor and the Supervisee in the course of the Schema Therapy Supervision work.  We hope to inspire participants to see these challenges, although sometimes very difficult, as opportunities for healthy professional and personal growth, and for specifically enhancing schema therapy competence in the treatment room.

The learning experience will include the use of videos, demonstrations, and practice exercises with participants, as well as lecture and discussion.

This is an advanced-level workshop intended for current and future ST Supervisors. Attendance satisfies the ISST Supervisor Skills requirement for Trainer-Supervisor status.The prerequisite is to be in the process of qualifying for Advanced level ST Certification or be at the Advanced or Trainer-Supervisor level.
