About this training:

The Healthy Adult mode is the backbone of a successful schema therapy. Despite its pivotal role a detailed description of how to elicit this functional behaviour is lacking in most books on schema therapy. Integrating meta-cognitive techniques (to a large extend taken form Acceptance and Commitment therapy - ACT) substantially add to the table of building Healthy adult skills. The key processes (coined into schema therapy terms) are: Supporting clients to take a mindful observer stance, experience and accept painful child mode emotions in a self-compassionate way, defuse from critic mode voices, distance from dysfunctional coping mode impulses, shift into a balanced Healthy Adult mode, connect with core needs and commit oneself to value-directed functional behaviour. After a brief outline of the model and the principals of the schema therapy relationship small dyadic exercises will bring the theory to live, so the participants will get a vivid experience what the gain of a contextual schema therapy is and how it feels like.
