Schema therapy is particularly well suited for difficult, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological challenges, including personality disorders (such as borderline and narcissism personality disorders), eating disorders, intractable relationship problems, and forensic issues. It is also effective for relapse prevention in depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. The results of a major comparative outcome study have shown schema therapy to be highly effective with a large percentage of outpatients with borderline personality disorder, with a low dropout rate. Clients who have spent years gaining valuable insight with psychodynamic treatments, but who are frustrated by their lack of progress, often respond well to the active, systematic, flexible, and depth-oriented schema therapy approach.
This 2-day workshop will include a combination of teaching methods, including lectures, handouts, video clips, live demonstrations, question-and-answer periods, group discussion, assessment and change strategies practice exercises, discussion of obstacles in treatment—including therapist's own schemas.
