Schema Therapy for Couples (ST-C) is a relatively new and very promising approach to treat couples. Even more, the ST-C model offers us a broad scale of therapeutic tools to work with the partner relationship itself but -if necessary- also with the individual partner.
This training will focus on the extensive possibilities that ST-C has to offer.
In this training you will learn:
- How to include a partner more effectively and meaningfully.
- How to apply Roediger’s so called „Two-leg-model“ during the therapy.
- How to focus on the most important ‘Mode cycles’ and how to stop the dysfunctional Mode clash.
- How to rebalance every partner and how to use the connection dialogue skills.
- How you to use conjoint imagery exercises as a very effective method to strengthen the emotional bond.

The basic module system developed by dr. E. Roediger and colleagues consists of 13 main modules and two optional modules which are presented and practiced in small groups.

As experienced couples therapists we are very convinced that this model helps you to navigate through the many and exciting challenges couples therapy is offering. The schema couples therapy is a new and very promising approach in treating couples. The method can also be helpful in individual therapy, when treating relationships issues that very often occur during the therapeutic process.

In this training we will focus on schema couples therapy methods. In addition we will address how to more effectively and meaningfully include a partner in an individual therapy. We aim to build competence, confidence and interest in working with couples.
