Dealing with Anger! Including Therapists Schema Activation

  • 23 Mar 2015
  • 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
  • PTZ, Alt Niederursel 53, Frankfurt, Germany

Anger can often activate therapist's schemas, compromising the healthy adult mode leading to maladaptive responses, i.e. stifling the patient ́s anger too quickly or punitively, subjugating themselves to the patient ́s abuse, colluding with challenging issues of entitlement or insufficient self control. So the therapist ́s competence for empathic confrontation or limit setting and meeting the unmet core needs is impaired.

This workshop will provide strategies for discerning angry and bullying overcompensating modes and for effectively addressing them, including realizing and differentiating these modes, getting aware and using our personal schema activations and using them for effective empathic confrontation and limit setting, that help patients safely experience childhood origins and verbalize links to the emotional messages imbedded in their anger leading to a replacement of overshooting angry reactions by healthy and adaptive responses.
