Schema Therapy: Breaking Through with the Treatment Resistant Client


Schema therapy is an innovative, integrative therapeutic approach, originally developed (by Dr. Jeffrey Young) as an expansion of traditional cognitive-behavioral treatments.  Schema therapy is particularly well-suited for difficult, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological disorders, including personality disorders (such as BPD and narcissism), eating disorders, intractable relationship problems, and criminal offenders. It is also effective for relapse prevention in depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. This workshop will provide an overview of schema therapy and its key components, including how to identify early maladaptive schemas and dysfunctional modes, how to explore with clients the origins of schemas and modes, how to identify one’s own schemas, and how to apply schema therapy through case examples.
