Heart Work in Schema Therapy: Improving Resilience Through Self-Awareness and Embodiment
LIVE Presentation with Susan Simpson and Diana LaPonder
This workshop provides an opportunity for therapists to develop self-awareness into those schemas & modes that interfere with their own well-being and quality of life whilst exploring ways of building their Healthy mode in the context of the work environment. In this short 'taster' workshop, we will explore ways that therapists they can build regular restorative practices (including breathing techniques, movement,micro-pauses) into their everyday work-life, in order tomaintain equilibrium and build resilience.The workshop will give participants an opportunity to reflect on how they can better take care of themselves and build resilience whilst drawing on the available research on this topic.
