    Dealing with Angry Patients: Tips & Tricks for Therapists


    One of the most difficult things for therapists to address in the therapy process is how to work with angry patients. Examples that can come up in the therapy office may include:

    • The client resists doing exercises in-session, and agitation intensifies as therapy continues
    • The client suddenly bursts out into rage for no apparent reason, ranting off a list of perceived injustices
    • The client becomes threatening or angry in a degrading way when he or she feels disrespected

    Therapists can react to such examples of anger in very different ways. Some therapists may find anger so difficult that they try to preempt any dissatisfaction, irritation or anger in the client, clamping down during the session.

    However, when a client is angry, he or she can also provoke feelings of failure in the therapist, causing the therapist to feel anxious and insecure. The therapist could even criticize him or herself for allowing the client to become angry.

    When anger is not addressed effectively, the therapeutic process can stagnate, leading to feelings of despondency and exhaustion in the therapist, and a premature exit from the client.

    In this webinar, participants will first learn to distinguish between the various forms of anger. Next, participants will learn how to address the different forms of anger effectively using tips & tricks from specific Schema Therapy methods and techniques.

    How do corrective emotional experiences play a central role in schema therapy?
    View this email in your browser
    The Corrective Emotional Experience: It's Central Place Within Schema Therapy
    by David Edwards 
    ISST President


    All psychotherapy interventions aim to provide corrective experiences of some sort, but the term “corrective emotional experience,” used by Franz Alexander and Thomas French (1946) captured what they saw as the heart of what brings about meaningful change in brief psychodynamic therapy. 

    A storm of protest and rejection erupted from much of the psychoanalytic community, that would continue for decades. This reflected the split between Freud and Ferenczi over Ferenczi’s recognition of the reality and significance of childhood trauma and his more intense emotional engagement with clients’ experience.

    The term, as Alexander and French defined it, captures important elements of what in schema therapy we call “limited reparenting.”  Schema therapy extends this through imagery and psychodrama, methods widely employed by critics of Freud throughout the 20th century, but viewed with deep suspicion within traditional psychoanalysis.

    “Corrective emotional experiences" bring about positive change in early maladaptive schemas through accessing the Vulnerable Child, and the experiences that led to EMS formation in the first place.  They correct them through identifying unmet developmental needs and finding ways to meet them. This is schema healing.  

    This keynote will examine the challenges encountered in this process, not only from coping modes and parent modes, but also from mode complexity, embedded modes, and dissociated modes. It will also look at how, as an integrative therapy, schema therapy draws on other kinds of corrective experience to strengthen the process of schema change.

    David has graciously granted permission for us to provide a digital recording of his keynote, with copyright restrictions, to all active ISST members enrolled on the website.

    Schema Therapy for Grief with Dr. Gemma Gladstone


    Grief is an inescapable experience inherent in the human condition. The majority of clients presenting for mental health concerns or interpersonal problems are also carrying some degree of unprocessed loss, whether in the form of specific bereavements or as integral components of other difficult life experiences (e.g., an abusive childhood). It is often the case that unprocessed or inhibited grief serves as a maintaining factor for many emotional disorders -- major depression being the most obvious.

    Many times clinicians are faced with dilemmas of clinical priorities and may sway away from grief work, either because of a lack of confidence, or an uncertainty about which interventions might be most effective. This webinar will equip therapists with a skill set in selected schema therapy experiential techniques to help address the needs of patients who are grieving.

    Dr. Gemma Gladstone is a clinical psychologist located in Sydney, Australia. She is an Advanced Certified Schema Therapist, Supervisor, and Trainer. Gemma has 24 years of experience in various roles within mental health, and has worked in her private practice since 2001. In addition, she has worked in academia, holding the position of senior research fellow at the Black Dog Institute (UNSW), and has over 30 peer-reviewed publications in the area of mood disorders.

    Gemma is co-director of the Good Mood Clinic in Sydney, and found of its sister company, the Sydney Centre for Schema Therapy, established to provide training on special interest topics within schema therapy. She specializes in providing schema therapy and experiential interventions for treatment resistant patients including chronic depression, narcissistic and borderline personalities, complex trauma, relationships, emotion coaching for schema prevention, and complicated grief.

    In 2006, Stockholm hosted the 1st International Society of SchemaTherapy Conference. Approximately 56 people attended the event which​ established the inner workings of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST). The exponential growth in both interest and application of the Schema Therapy model, demonstrated by the attendance of 1150 clinicians, researchers, trainers and students from 49 countries at​ INSPIRE 2018 in Amsterdam​, is ​astounding​ and gratifying​. 

    The ​conference theme “Corrective Emotional Experiences: How Schema Therapy Transforms Lives,” was ​well met with enthusiasm by those who were fortunate enough to attend. To those who ​practice schema therapy in geographically isolated regions, from regions where there is less exposure to the schema model, or in workplaces where other treatment modalities are dominant, the event itself was a corrective emotional experience. It ​provided an opportunity to meet others with similar therapeutic views, to share ideas collaboratively and to feel connected to a group of like-minded individuals; ​confirming that ​you ​are not the only practitioner of Schema Therapy!

    For many ISST members​,​ ​the cost of ​attending such events can be prohibitive​ due to limitations in time and financial resources​. For those members who were unable to attend the Amsterdam conference, we hope in the coming editions of the Schema Therapy Bulletin to bring you contributions and presentations from the event. Furthermore, in the coming months the Schema Therapy Webinar Series will be made available, featuring 90 minute specialist schema therapy webinars (many of which presented in Amsterdam and other ISST events). 

    While many of our members were preparing their presentations of the Amsterdam conference, others took the time to write articles sharing new and interesting approaches to Schema Therapy.

    In ​the current issue, Scott Kellogg (USA) discusses the application of chair-work​ in schema therapy and describes a framework for understanding and​organizing mode dialogues​, and ​offers ​a variety of chair work opportunities​.

    Rachel Samson (Australia) discusses the use of Schema Therapy within a family based approach  exploring a case study of an adolescent and her family the exploring effect of temperament and attachment in the treatment.

    Finally, Erin Bulluss (A​u​stralia) describes the use of Schema Therapy with those with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, describing ​ways to work with the​ Schema Therapy model to accommodate​ the ​neurodevelopment aspects of the condition.

    We continue to call for contributions for upcoming issues of the Schema Therapy Bulletin. If you have an article or want to propose a contribution please make contact.

    Transformational Chairwork: The Four Dialogue Matrix
    Scott Kellogg, PhD. New York, USA
     

    A central irony of Chairwork is that Chairwork has nothing to do with chairs.  Chairwork is based on the belief that there is a healing and transformative power in (1) giving voice to one’s inner parts, modes, or selves, and in (2) enacting or re-enacting scenes from the past, the present, or the future.  

    In light of the many different strategies that have been developed to achieve these goals, one of my central projects has been to distill this method down to its essential dialogical components in hope that these can then be used as building blocks in the therapeutic encounter.  To this end, I have counterbalanced the polarity of using one chair (I) or two chairs (II) with the polarity of having an internal dialogue (I) or an external dialogue (E).  The result has been the creation of the Four Dialogue Matrix

    When a Duck is Raising a Swan: Temperament and Attachment in Schema Therapy with Families
    Rachel Samson, Clinical Psychologist, Adelaide Australia

    15-year-old Sarah and her mother, Ann, initially presented in crisis. Sarah’s boyfriend had broken-up with her and she had become highly distressed and dysregulated in response; lashing out verbally and physically at her mother, refusing school, and threatening suicide. Sarah’s mother and father were overwhelmed and had both taken leave from work to stay at home with Sarah due to concerns about her safety. Sarah attended the hospital on several occasions for psychiatric review and police and paramedic attendance had been required at the family home during episodes of heightened distress, intense conflict, and aggression. The family reported that previous psychiatric and psychological intervention had not been helpful and that Sarah had been reluctant to engage. The dyad was referred to me by a colleague for family-based Schema Therapy.

    Schema Therapy and the Autism Spectrum: The importance of modifying the Schema Therapy conceptual framework to counter neuro-normative assumptions when  working with neurodiverse populations
    Erin K. Bulluss, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Centre for Schema Therapy Australia, Adelaide, South Australia

     

    Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASCs) refer to a set of lifelong, neurodevelopmental syndromes with a prevalence of 1% across age groups (Lai & Baron-Cohen, 2015). People with an ASC may refer to themselves as being autistic, on the autism spectrum, neurodiverse (plural) or neurodivergent (singular)- as opposed to allistic or neurotypical- in recognition of their fundamental neurodevelopmental differences from the majority of the population. These neurodevelopmental differences are not inherently pathological, nor have they developed as a result of experiences during infancy or childhood, they are simply intrinsic differences from the majority of the population.

    Being in the minority, individuals on the autism spectrum often experience an environmental mismatch, whereby the environment is shaped to meet the needs of the neurotypical majority and does not adequately meet the needs of the neurodivergent individual. For example, a recent meta-synthesis by Williams and colleagues (2017) found that mainstream school environments greatly impact the manner in which children with ASCs view their differences from the neurotypical majority. It seems most children in the studies experienced school environments that were not inclusive and accepting of neurodiversity, and thus interpreted their differences from typically developing peers as negative. This meta-synthesis identified that these children also appeared to have internalised the negative comments made by others, and referred to themselves with terms like weird, freak, mentally disabled, and having a bad brain.

    On the other hand, there was a small proportion of children with ASC who viewed their differences positively, and while there was not sufficient information to fully understand how these children had made sense of themselves in such different ways, it seemed supportive peers, accessible classroom environments, and flexible platforms for learning and socialising contributed to this difference in self-perception.
