In this Pre-Congress Workshop, first the schema therapeutic conceptual model, the underlying theory, and requirements in the therapeutic attitude are briefly outlined. Related to the children’s age one of the 18 schemas described by Young are outlined with their typical child and adolescent cognitions, coping strategies, and parental characteristics. In the center of the workshop are training and practice units, encompassing schema therapeutic strategies that have proven successful in schema- and mode driven, cognitive behavioral therapy of childhood and adolescence: Working with drawings, finger puppets, and chair work, but also with board-games, using storytelling and fairy tale therapy techniques, marionettes, sand-play, , and
metaphors. In the second part we would like to explain the basic ideas for the “Inner House” and demonstrate how to work with it. This approach integrates mode and schema work with the 3 levels of the "Inner House", an adapted technique for imagery re-scripting work. It is suitable for adolescent patients, and all those (adults) who are not able to accept the Imagery Rescripting approach.
Workshop’s participants have understood and learned the following contents: - Theoretical basics of ST-CA - Psychoeducation through drawings and finger puppets - Working with child modes, especially with the vulnerable and angry child modes - Chair dialogue - Use of the Inner House, as a substituion to Imagery Rescripting - Comprehension of the Inner House, and training in how to build it up with patients
The workshop is intended for: Beginners and Advanced
