This webinar provides an overview and demonstration of the Schema Therapy interventions for the treatment challenges BPD clients present. It reviews the eight main challenges BPD patients present for practitioners and the ways in which schema therapists work with them. These challenges include the schema activation therapists encounter in working with BPD patients. The ST interventions presented include: imagery rescripting, development of the client’s internal “Good Parent” and interventions to deal with flashbacks, avoidance, detachment and dissociation. The webinar will include case examples of clients successfully treated with schema therapy.

Group and individual ST treatment has demonstrated its effectiveness for BPD in a series of randomized controlled trials (Geisen-Bloo, et al., 2006; Farrell, Shaw & Webber, 2009; Arntz, et al., 2023). ST goes beyond symptom reduction to improve the lives of patients with BPD. Jeffrey Young, Ph.D., the founder of ST states : “Other treatments for BPD, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, have also led to more effective coping skills and a significant reduction in self-harm, however, with Schema Therapy patients are, in addition, breaking free of lives of pain, self-hatred, and emptiness, making deeper personality changes, and significantly improving the quality of their lives.”

Why Schema Therapy?

Schema therapy has been extensively researched to effectively treat a wide variety of typically treatment resistant conditions, including Borderline Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
