Accredited Schema Therapy Training for Difficult Couple Issues

Date: 5 Oct 2018 - 6 Oct 2018


Schema Therapy has recently been adapted to treat very difficult couples where one or both have traits of personality disorder. ST has easy-to-grasp concepts, such as schemas and modes, which make sense of the couple's past experiences, educate them, and open the door to allow them to speak freely about ways in which both can feel more connected. This 2 day workshop will include an introduction to Schema Therapy, assessment with genogram, working hot with emotional focus, inter-relationship of schemas and modes, mode mapping and Mode Cycle Clash Cards. The main techniques of visualization and chair-work are adapted to working with couples. There is a focus on dealing with affairs and the discovery of hidden learning for couples. Using ST for couples can lead to lasting change in relationships.
