SCHEMA THERAPY: INTRODUCTORY COURSE

This two-day evidence-based experiential introductory course gives you an excellent starting point for learning about Schema Therapy - a modern integrative approach to treatment based on the principal aspects of cognitive-behavioural, experiential, and interpersonal therapies - and their practical applications.

Developed by Jeffrey Young in the 1980s, Schema Therapy is an integrative approach that builds on traditional cognitive therapy by adding ideas and techniques from other approaches, such as Psychodynamic and Gestalt therapies. It is a warm, compassionate approach that focuses as much on the healing relationship between therapist and client as it does on changing ways of thinking and behaving.

Originally developed for clients with borderline personality disorder, schema therapy (ST) has been enhanced and modified to treat all of the personality disorders, as well as treatment-resistant Axis I problems such as long-term depression and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse and addiction, OCD, panic disorder, low self-esteem, difficulties in relationships and similar problems that a standard course of CBT alone may not be enough to successfully treat.

“I WANT TO STOP PROCRASTINATING NOW” – TWO DAY PROGRAMME (2 DAYS)

Procrastination is one of the biggest problems experienced today in the UK. Experienced by between one in five and one in six of the population it is particularly marked amongst those engaging in academic study – rising to 75% in some surveys. Often seen as a “time management issue” procrastination is typically initiated and maintained through a number of well researched and established psychological processes. These same processes are equally amenable to a range of effective psychological techniques and strategies that reduce the degree of procrastination that sufferers experience and in some instances totally eliminate it.
