Group Schema Therapy: Beyond The Basics ONLINE TRAINING
3 Mondays 9:30am - 2:30pm, AEDT, Melbourne time, July 19, 26 and August 2, 2021 | THREE DAY ADVANCED TRAINING IN GROUP SCHEMA THERAPY FOR PERSONALITY DISORDER, BASED ON PROTOCOL DEVELOPED BY PROFESSOR JOAN FARRELL AND MS IDA SHAW.
This Advanced Master Class is intended for participants who have completed the Introduction to Group ST. It fulfils the advanced level training requirement for certification in Group ST by the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST). Each training day fulfils one of the module requirements for certification.
Module one focuses on interventions to get through the Maladaptive Coping Modes: including the avoidant and overcompensating modes and mastery of group empathic confrontation interventions.
Module two focuses on interventions for the Dysfunctional Parent modes and accessing the Healthy Adult mode.
Module three focuses on interventions to reach and heal the Child Schema Modes including group imagery rescripting, playful interventions and limited reparenting by child mode.
Each module consists of equal parts of didactic with demonstration and practice with observation and coaching. Although the interventions are discussed in terms of their application in Group ST, many are just as applicable to individual and participants report their effectiveness in their individual as well as group work. Dr Farrell and Ms Shaw's second book The Schema Therapy Clinician’s Guide, Wiley 2014 provides an entire program of group and individual ST that is appropriate for brief 10-20 sessions or longer (1 year) outpatient and more intensive programs like inpatient and day therapy. It includes therapist scripts and handouts for 42 group sessions and 12 individual sessions. This ST program is adaptable for a variety of lengths and is transdiagnostic.
