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 the Advanced level 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. The training is part of the ISST approved GST Certification programs of the STI Midwest-Indianapolis and of the STI Australia. Advanced level Certification requires the Intro workshop, these 3 days and 20 additional hours of supervision. 

Workshop attendees are given priority in scheduling supervision with the trainers.For more information visit the Schema Therapy Institute Australia website.
