Schema Therapy Training - Level 3
Focus of the course: In Schema Therapy, the therapist’s qualities are central to the therapeutic technique in providing limited re-parenting and a working model of a 'healthy adult'. An important part of training for Schema Therapists therefore is self-therapy and reflection to understand and manage the activation of our own underlying schemas and modes. This is especially important for therapists who routinely work with complex patients (e.g. complex trauma, eating disorders, personality disorder) and settings (e.g. Prisons, Inpatient wards, group work) which can easily trigger our own schema-based reactions. Awareness and management of our own schemas and modes is therefore crucial to effective schema therapy and managing risk of therapist burnout. Participation in the workshop will include practice of new interventions to use with clients and give access to a deeper, ‘experiential’ understanding of schema therapy interventions. This workshop can be counted towards the ISST Therapist certification requirement of "Self-Therapy" (individual certification) and is appropriate for therapists both new and experienced with the ST model.
Places are strictly limited to allow for better supervised practice and feedback and we expect this workshop to quickly reach full capacity so please book early to avoid disappointment.
