SCHEMA THERAPY: An Attachment-Based Approach to Treatment Resistant Clients. 

Presenter: Rob Brockman, PhD (Clinical Psychologist).  


Schema therapy was initially developed by Jeffery Young for those clients that did not respond to traditional CBT. Treatment trials have consistently shown Schema Therapy to be an effective treatment for complex cases and those that might attract diagnosis of personality disorder. In this workshop, participants will learn the core concepts that underpin schema therapy practice; the interplay between core emotional needs, and the development of Early Maladaptive Schemas and Coping Styles. Participants will also learn how to incorporate schema concepts into their approach to assessment and case conceptualization of ‘tough cases’. The course will also introduce the core approach to schema change/ interventions including cognitive and behavioral techniques for schema change, but also the experiential (e.g. Imagery Rescripting) and limited parenting techniques that make the schema model such a powerful approach. Registrants will come away having been exposed to concrete strategies for helping heal clients through corrective emotional experiences, within an attachment-based framework.
