SchemaTherapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis

Schema Therapy Workshops UK

In the last few years attention has been paid to the specific adaptations needed to use Schema therapy, which originated for adults, effectively with the child and adolescent populations. In 2014 as specialty area in Child-Adolescent ST was recognized by the ISST. A work group that began in Germany with Christof Loose, Peter Graf, Gerhard Zarbock and Petra Baumann-Frankenberger went on to include Ida Shaw, Maria Galimzyanova, Elena Romanova and Paul Kasyanik. Ida is best known for her innovative experiential work and the development of the Group Schema Therapy model, but her graduate training focused on Developmental Psychology and work with Children and adolescents. She was pulled into working with BPD in her collaboration with Joan Farrell, but after three books and 20 years of specialization and providing training she has recently been returning to her roots in Child and adolescent ST. She is collaborating on training with Christof Loose, Erin Bulluss and Rachel Samson and has established an ISST Approved Certification Training Program in C-A ST through the Schema Therapy Institute Midwest - Indianapolis.  

This three day introduction presents basics of the C-A ST model and its core interventions, including work with parents. The primary focus is on the Mode Model and core interventions that will be covered include: limited reparenting, imagery re-scripting, mode-specific role-plays, focused play therapy, puppet work and other experiential interventions.  The importance of understanding childhood development and the neurobiology of key developmental periods is emphasized. The workshop incorporates: didactic sections with powerpoint and group discussion, demonstrations by trainers in which the workshop participants play patients, and opportunities for participants to practice group interventions with coaching and feedback. This is the first workshop in an organized curriculum of training in Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy offered by the Schema Therapy Institute Midwest – Indianapolis in cooperation with ST Workshops UK. It is eligible for 18 training hours credit in the International Society of Schema Therapy C-A certification program. The second and third trainings will be scheduled later in 2017 and 2018. It is not necessary to sign on for the entire program to attend this workshop. It is designed for people who have some exposure to ST from attending an intro workshop or reading the core literature.
