Two-day workshop: 25thand 26thJune, 2018

BPS Building, London, EC2A 4UE

with Dr Helen Startup and Janis Briedis, Applied Psychologists

This is a unique workshop designed for clinicians with experience in cognitive behavioural approaches (or other allied modalities) who are interested in expanding their skills for working with individuals with complex needs and where there are significant relational challenges, or where the client does not respond to standard treatment. The workshop will cover the fundamental concepts and techniques of schema theory. There will be a practical emphasis on supporting attendees to feel confident in (1) formulating complex presentations via mode mapping, and (2) in the change techniques of: chair work, imagery work, limited reparenting and empathic confrontation.  We will also explore methods for enhancing the ‘Healthy Adult’ mode where individuals have limited positive internal dialogues. We will discuss strategies for their integration within time-limited CBT.
