Limited Reparenting in Schema Therapy: the importance of the client therapist interaction

Limited reparenting is considered to play an important role in Schema Therapy. This workshop explores this concept in terms of nurturing and limit setting. In addition it focuses on the role of openness and authenticity. Experiential techniques will also be used to help you become more aware of your styles of relating and how your life history, schemas and modes interact with your patients modes and schemas.


How to conduct Schema group therapy

 Schema group therapy is increasingly popular around the world. Clinical trials have provided evidence that this format of Schema therapy can produce clinical and significant changes. It is becoming increasingly popular in both public and private settings. It enables clinicians to continue to provide therapy beyond the allocated 10 sessions under Medicare. In this introductory workshop participants are trained in the basic concepts of schema group therapy including how to set up a time-limited schema group (e.g. 10 sessions). The workshop will be didactic and experiential. The techniques taught are also useful in an individual context. Participants are required to have at least two different case-studies in their mind when coming to this workshop so that they can use these in exercises in the workshop.
