(Group-)Schema Therapy for Eating Disorders

Susan Simpson

January 31 and February 1, 2019

Maastricht, The Netherlands

The Schema Therapy (ST) Mode model is well suited to the eating disordered population, particularly those with complex problems, rigid personality traits & interpersonal difficulties. Schema Therapy (ST) is an integrative therapeutic approach aimed at treating those with entrenched interpersonal, self-identity and characterological difficulties. One of the focal guiding strategies in ST is the development of a formulation & treatment plan which links early origins & underlying functions of eating disorders with current symptoms. This model addresses change not only at an intellectual/cognitive level, but also incorporates techniques that lead to emotional & behavioral change. ST techniques specifically target the rigid belief systems & high levels of avoidance characteristic of both characterological disorders & complex eating disorders that frequently interfere with progress in traditional treatments. The language during the workshop is English.
