Schema Therapy is an integrative treatment that combines aspects of cognitive-behavioural, experiential, interpersonal, gestalt and psychoanalytic therapies into one unified model. Schema therapy was developed by Jeffrey Young for the treatment of personality disorders and chronic Axis I disorders after he identified people who had failed to repsond to traditional cognitive therapies, due to the long-standing patterns or themes in thinking, feeling and behaving that were resistant to change. This one-day workshop will introduce students to the concepts and practice of Schema Therapy and will include a brief introduction to the use of imagery and chair work to bring about change.
