"Cluster-C: From Addiction to Connection. Working with the Self-Soother or Self-Stimulator in Cluster-C Patients: the Hidden Addiction Mode" 

An interview with Truus Kersten and Guido Sijbers

- Click pictures above to see interview -

Join Truus Kersten and Guido Sijbers as they dive into the hidden addiction mode: the self-soother in Cluster-C Personality Disorders. In this interview by Travis Atkinson, they give a sneak peak of their workshop, which focuses on the specific characteristics of this mode, and the differences with other avoidant coping modes. They will explain how the self-soother and self-stimulator modes can be observed in and outside the therapy session. Truus and Guido also will give a short introduction of the core elements of evidence-based addiction treatment (CBT), and suitable schema therapy techniques.

Truus and Guido will argue that the self-soother can be a hidden mode, illustrated by case examples of Cluster C-patients in different treatment settings, including general mental health, addiction, and forensic settings.

Ringstrasse Tram Tour: Glide By Great Sights in Vienna

Hop aboard Vienna's Ringstrasse tram: enjoy an hour-long orientation of some of the Ringstrasse's greatest sights. The Ringstrasse was constructed in the 1860s by Emperor Franz Josef, who replaced the medieval wall with the boulevard. The self-guided tour starts and ends at the centrally located Opera house.

When to go: enjoy the Ringstrasse tram by day, or during the evening hours when buildings are beautifully lit. Allow for more time if you plan to stop at sights or visit nearby points of interest.
