Schema Therapy 1 day workshop
⦁ Structure and process of a typical schema therapy session ½ day ⦁ Working with OCPD ½ day ⦁
This workshop has been designed for clinicians who would benefit from guidance on the structure and process of a schema therapy session and also to introduce clinicians to the application of schema therapy to clients with OCPD or OCPD-type difficulties. Therefore, the day will be split into two distinct parts. The morning will consist of working with OCPD and the afternoon will focus on the structure and process of a typical schema therapy session. The second part of the day will also focus on commonly experienced difficulties facing clinicians working with challenging cases across diverse diagnostic criteria, including working with detachment, intense mood states & problematic behaviours. The precise direction and focus of the second part of the day will be developed from the needs of the workshop group on the day. It is assumed that attendees have a clear understanding of the Schema Therapy model. Video footage and/or live demonstrations will be used to assist with this learning experience.
Key learning areas
Participants will gain:
- A total of 2½ hours of supervised role-play: this will focus on the modes classically associated with OCPD: vulnerable child mode; demanding parent mode & perfectionistic overcontroller mode, and also on modes which become relevant in the second part of the day).
- A total of 3¼ hours of didactic (including discussion/demonstrations/videos) teaching on general elements of schema therapy, OCPD, structure and process of a typical schema therapy session, and commonly experienced difficulties facing clinicians.
- Experience of developing a session focus and maintaining structure through the use of attunement, understanding and empathic confrontation.
