    Summary:

    Schema Therapy with Children/Adolescents (ST-CA) and their Parents

    (3 workshop units: 1x2 days, 2x3 days; in total 64 TU TU=tutor units =45 min)

    Schema Therapy (ST) developed by Jeffrey Young is an enhancement and development of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and particularly integrates emotions, but also developmental aspects centrally in their diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. In addition, ST is based on a model of schemas, modes and the basic needs and "their fate" during the life course. Therefore, ST - in terms of technical and strategic variant of CBT – seems to be also and especially in the field of child and adolescent therapy particularly suited to generate action-guiding, diagnostic and therapeutic concepts.

    In total 3 workshop units (WS 1-3) of the "Children's Curriculum", first the schema therapeutic conceptual model (schemas, modes, coping strategies), the underlying theory (central importance core needs in the context of developmental tasks), possible diagnostic means (eg, projective methods) and requirements in the therapeutic attitude (eg, concept of “limited reparenting” and “empathic confrontation”) are outlined, put on the ground of temperament and personality factors in childhood and adolescence. However, in the center of the workshop series are training and practice units, encompassing schema therapeutic strategies that have proven successful in cognitive behavioral therapy of childhood and adolescence. Another focus is laid on the teaching of advanced and deepened work with parents in terms of "Schema Coaching" or "Systemic Schema Therapy“ that include schema or mode specific transactional processes between child and parent and shed a light on mutual reinforcement’s processes of child’s und parent’s maladaptive schemas. Last but not least the basic principles of ST-CA in groups are outlined.

    Children's Curriculum Workshop 1 ("Introductory WS"; 16 TU)

    The introductory workshop illuminates the formation and perpetuating model of maladaptive schemas against the background of age-specific developmental tasks, risk and protective temperamental factors. Related to the children’s age the 18 schemas described by Young are outlined with their typical child and adolescent appearance and coping strategies. Other topics include the multimodal diagnostic techniques (use of exploration, survey, imagery, case conceptualization) and explain the significance of the therapeutic relationship, psychoeducation and empathic confrontation.

    As an overview therapeutic strategies are demonstrated: Working with drawings and pictures, mode-based play therapy, working with stories, finger and hand puppets, small figurines, metaphors, chair work, imagery, templates, the use of flash cards and homework.

    An important part of the introductory workshop is to work with parents, which is also outlined in an overview. Contents are typical parental mode constellations, mode cycle flash cards, investigation of parental schemas and modes, and the practical implementation in mode work with parents (working with chairs, templates, wooden figures, drawings, etc.).

    Beside the introductory in schema theory the workshop offers many practical demonstrations by picture and video material, and small exercises allow the participants transferring the content into their own practice.

    Children's Curriculum Workshop 2 (three days, 24 TU)

    Focus: ST for Children and Adolescents (16 TU) and ST for Parents (8 TU)

    This workshop is based upon the content of the introductory workshop (WS 1), whose participation is a prerequisite for the immersion workshops (WS 2 to 3).

    This workshop is based upon the content of the introductory workshop (WS 1). The goal of this workshop is to learn the techniques of schema therapy with children and adolescents specifically. Additionally, there will be an introduction into the work with parents.

    After a brief connection with the schema theoretical introduction and sharing of some experiences in practice (WS 1), the focus will be laid on the features of the particular therapeutic relationship, including the concepts of limited reparenting, empathic confrontation and practical working with the special schema therapeutic techniques.

    Video examples and role-play in groups of two or three participants ensure the consolidation and deepening of what has been learnt. In particular, the content and methods are:

    • Working on close relationships with children and adolescents
    • Working with finger and hand puppets
    • Imagery
    • Use of flash cards and homework
    • Working with (stem) stories

    The first part of the parental work includes:

    • Therapeutic relationship with parents: "Limited Grand-Reparenting"
    • Investigation of parental resources, needs and family structures
    • Testing of questionnaires
    • Education of the schema and mode concept in the context of parenting with exercises in groups

    Beside the features of schema theory the workshop offers many practical demonstrations by picture and video material, and small exercises allow the participants transferring the content into their own practice.

    Children's Curriculum Workshop 3 (three days, 24 TU)

    Focus: ST for Parents (8 TU), Schema Therapeutic Case Conceptualization (8 TU), Group Schema-Therapy for Children and Adolescents (8 TU)

    This workshop is based upon the content of the introductory and immersion workshop (WS 1 and WS 2), whose participation is a prerequisite for this immersion workshop (WS 3).

    The goal of this workshop is to learn the techniques of schema therapy with parents (continuation of WS 2) and to apply the schematic therapeutic approaches to their own cases.

    After a brief connection with the theory of WS 1 und WS 2, the focus will be laid on the features of the work with parents including practical exercises. The parental mode work with chairs, finger puppets, templates, imagery, schema and mode flash card, internal dialogue and schema diary are the central point of the first day of WS 3.

    The second part of the parental work includes: (first part was in WS 2):

    • Creating a schematic therapeutic and systemic disturbance model
    • Adjustment of the parental schemas and modes
    • Mode feedback among family members
    • Schema pedagogy approaches (working with caregivers, teachers and so on)
    • Collusion of schemas and modes among the therapist and the patient (child/parents)
    • Usage of parental Mode-Cycle-Clash-Cards

    Case Conceptualization: Case studies of the participants and role play in groups of two

    or three participants ensure the deepening of what has been learnt. After the case presentation in the plenary, participants work out in small groups the schema therapeutic case concept and treatment plan to this patient and his family. Based on already implemented schematic therapeutic treatment techniques progress and problems in the used interventions are discussed. In the last unit participants will learn, how to follow the schema therapeutic approaches in the context of self-awareness, self-disclosure and supervision groups.

    The following content will be covered in the second and third day of this workshop:

    • Illustration of the basic approach to case conceptualization
    • Conceptualization and treatment planning for their own cases
    • Schema therapeutic aspects of formal reporting to health insurance companies and planning schema therapeutic supervision, self-experience and certification

    Special problems in the therapy

    • Working on the "Inner House"
    • Mode-oriented play therapy.

    HOW TO STRENGTHEN THE "HEATLHY ADULT" BY USING ACT & MINDFULLNESS 

    by Pierre Cousineau, PhD

    How to Strengthen the “Healthy Adult Mode” by Using ACT and Mindfulness is a workshop intended to give participants tools and knowledge for promoting the “Healthy Adult Mode» in their patients. The workshop will give participants opportunities to experience with themselves, and with others, exercises aimed to develop and nourish presence, flexibility, and compassion into the “Healthy Adult Mode”.

    The «Healthy Adult» is defined by Jeffrey Young as a «healthy, adult part of oneself that serves an «executive» function relative to the other modes.» The «Healthy Adult» helps meet the child’s basic emotional needs. Like a good parent, the «Healthy Adult» serves the following three basic functions: 1) Nurtures, accepts, and protects the Vulnerable Child, 2) Uses constructively the Angry Child and sets limits to the Impulsive/Undisciplined Child, in accord with the principles of reciprocity and self-discipline, 3) Confronts or moderates the maladaptive coping and dysfunctional parent modes.

    ACT and Mindfulness are paradigm shifts that have become increasingly popular in the Western world. They counterbalance an excessive tendency to rely solely on willpower to change things. The “Healthy Adult” part of patients will gain from such contributions applied in a compassionate framework.

    Objectives 

     1. Participants will learn and experience ways of applying ACT and Mindfulness in order to promote the “Healthy Adult Mode” in their patients. 

     2. Participants will learn ways to apply those same techniques onto themselves in order to further the “Healthy Adult” part of their therapist mode.

     3. Participants will get a glimpse into a memory reconsolidating technique.

    "My Schemas and Me: How to Increase Self Awareness, Resilience & Improve Therapeutic Outcomes"

    Date -   September 22nd , 2017
    Venue – Linlithgow (near Edinburgh)
    CPD - 7 hours of active CPD

    How do our own schemas effect our work and the way we manage our stress levels? What actions can we as clinicians take to manage burnout, fatigue and improve work satisfaction? This workshop will be centred around the recent evidence base in this area (including a large international study we conducted on this topic) and will give participants the opportunity to learn about the latest research findings on the schemas and modes which predict burnout and resilience amongst mental health professionals.  The following topics will be covered:

    Identifying schemas in your family of origin and how they may influence your work
    Stuck points and difficulties encountered in therapy - how are your schemas involved?
    Identifying triggers for your schemas in the work setting.
    Identifying your own coping modes, and building a more resilient Healthy Adult self in the work setting.
    Experiential exercises linked to schemas that have been shown to predict burnout, including role-play.
    Explore ways of changing work environments to build trust and resilience, whilst counteracting schema activation.
    Psychologists and other psychotherapists are at considerable risk of burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.  This workshop is based on recent research with over 400 participants that explored the schemas and modes that predict burnout and those that are most closely linked with resilience.  Findings indicate that schemas and coping modes are significantly associated with resilience and emotional exhaustion, indicating the potential benefit of resilience training or self-therapy for psychologists, focused on developing skills to manage their own schemas and modes.
    This workshop provides an opportunity for therapists to develop self-awareness into the effects of their own underlying schemas and modes in the work setting. Participants will be encouraged to examine their own schemas and the way in which these may interact with those of their clients, as well as their colleagues and work environments. Participants will learn about those schemas that interfere with their own well-being and quality of life whilst exploring ways of building their Healthy
    modes in the context of their own work environment.  The workshop will give participants an opportunity to reflect on how they can better take care of themselves and build resilience whilst drawing on the available research on this topic.
    Who is this workshop for?  This workshop is suitable for a range of professionals who practice psychotherapy, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, nurse therapists, and anyone working in mental health.
    Trainer: Dr. Susan Simpson, Clinical Psychologist.    Susan led the largest international study that has been carried out on the effects of schemas and modes on stress and burnout amongst clinical and counselling psychologists and trainee psychologists. Based on this data, several papers are currently being submitted for journal publication.

    Schema Therapy (ST) developed by Jeffrey Young is an enhancement and development of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and particularly integrates emotions, but also developmental aspects centrally in their diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. In addition, ST is based on a model of schemas, modes and the basic needs and "their fate" during the life course. Therefore, ST - in terms of technical and strategic variant of CBT – seems to be also and especially in the field of child and adolescent therapy particularly suited to generate action-guiding, diagnostic and therapeutic concepts.


    The St-CA concept was developed by a German working group around Christof Loose, Peter Graaf und Gerhard Zarbock.

    The workshop illuminates the formation and perpetuating model of maladaptive schemas. Related to the children’s age few examples of the 18 schemas described by Young are outlined with their typical child and adolescent appearance and coping strategies. Other topics include the multimodal diagnostic techniques (use of exploration, case conceptualization) and explain the significance of the therapeutic relationship, psychoeducation and empathic confrontation.

    As an overview therapeutic strategies are demonstrated: Working with drawings and pictures, working with finger and hand puppets, metaphors, chair work, mode-based play therapy, imagery, and the use of audio flash cards.

    An additional part of the workshop is the work with parents, called “Schema-Coaching for Parents”, which is also outlined in an overview.

    Beside the introductory in schema theory the workshop offers practical demonstrations by picture and video material, and small exercises allow the participants transferring the content into their own practice.

    This is the first workshop in ST-CA in Iran, organized by Dr. Amir Askari, Center for Advanced Studies in Mental Health, Tehran, Iran.

    Workshop 1:  3 Day Introduction to Group Schema Therapy:The Model and Method

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Ida Shaw, M.A. & Rita Younan, Ph.D.

    Schema Therapy Institute Australia

    Group Schema Therapy was developed by Farrell & Shaw (1994, 2012). The GST model integrates their original group work with Young’s individual Schema Therapy (ST)(2003) & the ST outcome research of Arntz (2009).  GST strategically uses the therapeutic factors of the group modality to catalyze the work of schema mode change. GST is a unique approach to ST that goes far beyond traditional group therapy models; furthermore, it does not simply incorporate individual ST interventions into a group format, rather, has developed new adaptations of ST interventions for the group modality. The central idea behind GST is that the group members, with the guidance of the therapists, create their own “family” in which they add sibling socialization to the reparenting the therapists provide. As part of this group corrective emotional process patients do imagery and roleplaying exercises in which they take on the roles of each group member’s various modes (e.g., the Detached Protector, the Healthy Adult, Punitive Parent) and ultimately heal them.  The experience of ST in a supportive, validating group can directly impact and heal key schemas such as, abandonment, defectiveness, emotional deprivation, social isolation and mistrust/abuse. Like individual ST, GST improves: stability of self, interpersonal relationships, social, family, and occupational functioning and quality of life. There is considerable research now supporting the effectiveness of the GST approach, including empirical validation from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) (Farrell & Shaw, 2009) and pilot studies conducted in the US, the Netherlands and in Germany (Reiss, Lieb, Arntz, Shaw & Farrell, 2013). These studies demonstrated very large positive effects from even a short group treatment of thirty sessions.

    GST was developed with BPD patients but like individual ST it is trans-diagnostic and adaptable to other personality disorders, complex trauma and other challenging populations as well as entrenched maladaptive schema and mode effects in any patients. The mode approach is an advantage of ST in the uncertain diagnostic time of DSMV.

    This 3 day workshop on the basics of Group Schema Therapy counts towards certification in Group Schema Therapy with the International Society for Schema Therapy. For costs and other information visit the website for Schema Therapy Institute Australia.

    Day 1: Fine-Tuning Imagery Rescripting: Together with Chris Hayes, Remco recorded video tapes with details how to apply Imagery Rescripting in various settings. They serve as a gold standard in this field. Both offered a workshop at the ISST-conference in Vienna that got the best feedback of all presented workshops. This is the first time Remco presents his skills in Germany, so don´t miss him!

    Day 2: Fine-tuning Mode Dialogues on Chairs: Beside Imagery Rescripting, Mode dialogues are the second major experiential technique used in Schematherapy. While Imagery works with the memories of interpersonal situations, Mode dialogues on multiple chairs enable us to lay out the inner world of a patient in the room, re-externalize self-representations and work with them. Enrolling into these two workshop days you will get an update on both techniques fueling your practical skills.

    Remco van de Vijngaart works as a psychotherapist in an outpatient clinic in Maastricht (NL) and is currently the Vice-President of the ISST. He offers workshops in many countries.

    Workshop 2:  Group Schema Therapy: Advanced Modules: Child Modes, Coping Modes, Critic Modes and the Healthy Modes

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Ida Shaw, M.A. & Rita Younan, Ph.D.

    Schema Therapy Institute Australia, 18 Credit hours

    This Advanced Master Class is intended for participants who have completed the Introduction to Group ST. It fulfills the advanced level training requirement for certification in Group ST by the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST). Each six hour training day fulfills one of the module requirements for certification. Module one focuses on interventions to get through the Maladaptive Coping Modes: including the avoidant and overcompensating modes and mastery of group empathic confrontation interventions. Module two focuses on interventions for the Dysfunctional Parent modes and accessing the Healthy Adult mode. Module three focuses on interventions to reach and heal the Child Schema Modes including group imagery rescripting, playful interventions and limited reparenting by child mode. Each module consists of equal parts of didactic with demonstration and practice with observation and coaching. Although the interventions are discussed in terms of their application in Group ST, many are just as applicable to individual and participants report their effectiveness in their individual as well as group work. 

     Their second book The Schema Therapy Clinician’s Guide, Wiley 2014 provides an entire program of group and individual ST that is appropriate for brief 10-20 sessions or longer (1 year) outpatient and more intensive programs like inpatient and day therapy. It includes therapist scripts and handouts for 42 group sessions and 12 individual sessions. This ST program is adaptable for a variety of lengths and is transdiagnostic.

    This workshop is part of the curriculum for ISST certification in Group Schema Therapy. You will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion that can be used in the documentation required for that certification.

    SCHEMA THERAPY INSTITUTE AUSTRALIA PRESENTS: 

    A SELF-PRACTICE/SELF-REFLECTION WEEKEND RETREAT

    WITH JOAN FARRELL, Ph.D & IDA SHAW, M.A. Schema Therapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis Center

    An important part of training for Schema Therapists is self-therapy to understand one’s own schemas and modes, the role they play in being a schema therapist and the impact of patients’ in triggering schemas and modes. Such self-awareness is critical to the genuine, open presence required by ST’s limited reparenting model; this is particularly important for therapists conducting group ST, as the impact of a number of clients at the same time can amplify therapists’ reactions and just being in a group can have triggering effects related to one’s family of origin. Self-schema therapy has personal benefits as well in terms of self-awareness and healing for one’s Vulnerable Child mode.

    Joan & Ida spent two years as members of a self-therapy for therapists in their training and consider that experience critical to their understanding of themselves, their reactions when participating in a group and what clients experience. Participation in the workshop will add new interventions to use with clients and the deeper experience of ST from the “inside – out”. They believe that what one learns from this experience cannot be taught as effectively didactically, if at all. For that reason self-therapy in a group is a requirement for ISST Group Schema Therapy certification and this workshop fulfils that requirement. It can also be used to meet the three supervision hours credit allowed to meet individual ST certification supervision requirements. This day is appropriate for therapists new to ST and for those who are experienced with it.

    Joan & Ida have facilitated self-therapy groups for over 30 years leading to their book Experiencing Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for Therapists, Guilford 2017.  The workshop begins with establishing safety and connection within the group and the agreement to keep confidential any personal material disclosed. Participants are encouraged to share as much or little content in the group as they feel comfortable with. They can choose to focus on a particular schema or mode issue that affects their personal or professional life or go into the day open to whatever experience they have. Just as they do with all groups, Joan & Ida assess the needs of the participants and plan the day’s work in collaboration with participants based upon the needs and modes present. The focus in the workshop is on experiential work including: exercises to identify maladaptive coping modes triggered in the group, awareness of the needs of your Vulnerable Child and self-care plans, further banishing work for the Demanding or Punitive Critic mode and evoking the Happy Child Mode to balance the hard work we do as therapists.

    Schema Therapy: Interventions to Overcome Common Obstacles in Treating Personality Disorder

    Joan Farrell, Ph.D., Schema Therapy Institute Midwest, Indianapolis  

    and Nicola Kenney, MSW,  Schema Therapy Academy of Australia

    This 2-day Master Class with Joan Farrell. PhD and Nicola Kenney, MSW, is suitable for Schema Therapists at all levels and clinicians who have some knowledge and experience in using the basic schema therapy model, and want to learn more about core schema therapy interventions to work with the issues presented by clients with personality disorders (e.g. Borderline PD, Avoidant PD, Narcissistic PD) and features of these disorders. Day 1 will specifically focus on impasses with clients and day 2 on the impasses these clients present for therapists.  Participants will learn ways to identify what the impasses are and help clients work though them. Interventions will include experiential work to connect and get through the resistance of dysfunctional coping styles, imagery rescripting and storytelling to introduce the Vulnerable Child Mode and mode role plays (aka schema mode chair work).  For impasses with therapists, exercises will be used from Joan and Ida's latest book: Learning Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for therapists (Guilford, expected in Dec 2017).

    Joan and Nicola are both ISST Advanced level Trainer-Supervisors in Individual Schema Therapy. This training can be counted toward the required curriculum for ISST certification in ST. If you are in a certification program, an ISST module certificate will be issued.

    Child and Adolescent Schema Therapy: Hand Puppets, Imagery, and Mode Dialogues!  

    with Ida Shaw, Schema Therapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis

    and Erin Bulluss & Rachel Samson, Centre for Schema Therapy Australia

    Part 1 of the ISST Certification Curriculum in Child-A dolescent Schema Therapy

    4 days - 28 CPD hours - 24 ISST credit hours

    Child and Adolescent Schema Therapy (ST-CA) is an innovative and integrative therapy for children and adolescents that significantly expands on traditional approaches.  Schema therapy integrates Cognitive-Behavioural, Attachment, Gestalt, Object Relations, and Emotion-focused schools with the research of Developmental Psychology into a richly unifying  evidence-based treatment model.
    ST-CA involves intensive work with the child and their caregivers with the aims to:

    • distinguish the differences between maladaptive behaviours and age appropriate behaviours
    • identify and validate the emotional needs of the child and help meet their needs through strengthening attachments and building adaptive coping strategies;
    • reduce and heal early maladaptive schemas and coping strategies by a strategic integration of Cognitive, Behavioural and Experiential interventions
    • educate and support caregivers in the recognition of the effects of their own schemas and modes on the children and adolescents under their care
    • help the caregivers connect to their own happy child mode to improve connection with the child
    • develop communication skills

    In this interactive workshop you will gain both a theoretical understanding of the ST model and practical skills in the application of Schema Therapy with children, adolescents, and their families. The workshop will teach participants to design developmentally appropriate approaches to implement experiential mode work with children and adolescents, including drawing, puppets, imagery, mode dialogues, imagery rescripting and story-telling.  The  approach of ST for  engaging caregivers and wider family and educational systems in treatment is also covered. Attendees will each receive a Little STAA ST-CA Resource Starter Kit containing a variety of materials to encourage creative implementation of schema therapy with individuals across the lifespan. Supervision and the rest of the C-A certification curriculum will be discussed snd arrangements made for you to work with one of the ISST approved supervisors of our programs via Skype or in person. Both individual and group supervision options are avavailable to meet the ISST requirements of 20 hours for standard level and 40 hours for advanced level certification.

    Difficult Therapy Situations - The Concept of the "Sphere of Emotional Resonance" 

    by Lukas Nissen

    Basis of this workshop is the fact that difficult therapy situations evolve, when the therapist, triggered by incidents within the therapeutic relationship, flips into a state of disintegration (maladaptive schemas and modes) and automatically/unintentionally engages in dysfunctional coping behaviour, which, in turn, amplifies dysfunctional mechanisms with the patient.

    By means of the concept of the „sphere of emotional resonance“, situations like this are analyzed and worked through with the goal of effecting a reassurance and better integration of the therapist, which allows him/her to encounter the patient in a more open way, being able again to esteem the patients needs more freely. Exercises in the sphere of emotional resonance imply mainly the mindful perception of body signals, coping mechanisms and felt threats, as well as the classification of alarm reactions within the life history.

    Another most important element of the exercises implies the compassionate validation of all the feelings and impulses that arise during the alarm reaction.

    Objectives

    • Participants will be introduced theoretically to the concept of the sphere of emotional resonance and have the occasion to work through their own difficult therapy situations by doing practical exercises.

    About the Presenter: 

    Before studying psychology and becoming a psychotherapist, Lukas Nissen absolved an acting school with the main focus on mime, body language and dance. This first formation reveals Lukas Nissen’s interest in everything that has to do with expression of feelings, intentions and thoughts through the body, an element that recurs in the development of the „sphere of emotional resonance“. Lukas Nissen works as a psychotherapist since almost 20 years, leads a curriculum for Schema Therapy in Basel, Switzerland and gives lectures and workshops in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Poland. Besides the treatment of patients, supervision and self-therapy of therapists is an important field of work for Lukas Nissen.
