Dates:  September 24th, 25th, 2020 (12.5 hours of active CPD)

How do our own schemas effect our work and the way we manage our stress levels? What actions can we as clinicians take to manage burnout, fatigue and improve work satisfaction? This workshop will be centred around the recent evidence base in this area (including a large international study we conducted on this topic) and will give participants the opportunity to learn about the latest research findings on the schemas and modes which predict burnout and resilience amongst mental health professionals.  The following topics will be covered:

  • Identifying schemas in your family of origin and how they may influence your work
  • Stuck points and difficulties encountered in therapy - how are your schemas involved?
  • Identifying triggers for your schemas in the work setting.
  • Identifying your own coping modes, and building a more resilient Healthy Adult self in the work setting.
  • Experiential exercises linked to schemas that have been shown to predict burnout, including role-play.
  • Explore ways of changing work environments to build trust and resilience, whilst counteracting schema activation.  Using breath and movement to counteract stress and build embodied resilience

This workshop provides an opportunity for therapists to develop self-awareness into the effects of their own underlying schemas & modes in the work setting, & the ways in which these are linked both to burnout & resilience. Participants will be encouraged to examine their own underlying unmet emotional needs & schemas, and the way in which these interact with those of their clients,  colleagues & work environments.

Participants will learn about those schemas that interfere with their own well-being & quality of life, whilst exploring ways of building their Resilient Healthy mode.  This workshop will give participants the opportunity to practice different ways to build regular restorative practices (including breathing techniques, movement, micro-pauses) into their everyday work-life, in order to maintain equilibrium and build resilience. In the workshop a connection is being made between basic needs & bodily sensations, with helpful exercises to integrate these ideas into daily routines. Drawing on the available research on this topic, this workshop will enable participants to reflect on how they can better take care of themselves and build resilience.

Who is this workshop for?  This workshop is suitable for a range of professionals who practice psychotherapy, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, nurse therapists, and anyone working in mental health.
