Schema Therapy for Grief with Dr. Gemma Gladstone

Grief is an inescapable experience inherent in the human condition. The majority of clients presenting for mental health concerns or interpersonal problems are also carrying some degree of unprocessed loss, whether in the form of specific bereavements or as integral components of other difficult life experiences (e.g., an abusive childhood). It is often the case that unprocessed or inhibited grief serves as a maintaining factor for many emotional disorders -- major depression being the most obvious.

Many times clinicians are faced with dilemmas of clinical priorities and may sway away from grief work, either because of a lack of confidence, or an uncertainty about which interventions might be most effective. This webinar will equip therapists with a skill set in selected schema therapy experiential techniques to help address the needs of patients who are grieving.

Dr. Gemma Gladstone is a clinical psychologist located in Sydney, Australia. She is an Advanced Certified Schema Therapist, Supervisor, and Trainer. Gemma has 24 years of experience in various roles within mental health, and has worked in her private practice since 2001. In addition, she has worked in academia, holding the position of senior research fellow at the Black Dog Institute (UNSW), and has over 30 peer-reviewed publications in the area of mood disorders.

Gemma is co-director of the Good Mood Clinic in Sydney, and found of its sister company, the Sydney Centre for Schema Therapy, established to provide training on special interest topics within schema therapy. She specializes in providing schema therapy and experiential interventions for treatment resistant patients including chronic depression, narcissistic and borderline personalities, complex trauma, relationships, emotion coaching for schema prevention, and complicated grief.

ISST's webinar series is being hosted by Chris Hayes, the ISST Executive Board Secretary.
