Healing Relationships: Including the partner into Schema Therapy and working with Couples

The schema therapy model describes how unmet core needs
lead to maladaptive schemas and coping behavior. Unfortunately schema chemistry plays an important role when we choose our partners. So we nd ourselves in the same complementary roles that we got used to in childhood and ght the former signi cant others in our partners by mutually “pushing our buttons” in esca- lating mode cycles.

Unlike most of the other approaches working with Couples sche- ma therapy is not working solely with the couple but includes single sessions in an individual treatment plan. Even more: We can start working with one partner and include the other partner later to a smaller or greater extend. Many of our patients in in- dividual therapy are in a relationship. Including the partner star- ts with thinking about him or her in therapy. Schema therapy is very flexible at that point. But balancing these relationships is a challenging issue. The curriculum addresses both: Starting with one partner and including the other or starting with the couple from the start.

The workshops give a theoretical framework and describe with slides, videos and live demonstrations how mode cycles work and how they can be changed by realizing the frustrated core needs, emotional reconnection through imagery and connection talk between the Healthy Adult modes. The diagnosis of mode cycles, schema dialogues, mode dialogues and multiple chairs for cla- rification, interrupting dysfunctional and creating functional com- munication will be trained in dyadic role plays.

The 3 workshops cover the content of the Couples-ST Curriculum for standard certification.
