"Anger, Aggression & the Forensic Population"
by Jan Kossack & Kerry Beckley
Dealing with forensic clients, or those who have significant anger issues, present challenges to the schema therapist, particularly when their behaviours result in fear, distress, anger or even disgust. In forensic settings, we use the schema model as a basis for offence formulation and as a way of making sense of the parallels between the offence and the therapy room. Schema formulation can also help us to make sense of the interpersonal dynamics within institutional settings. The mode model enables us to be able to appropriately care for the client whilst keeping the offence in mind, in order to achieve both healing for the client and improved public protection.
This workshop will include:
The seminar will include lecture, video presentation, role-plays, and clinical group exercises.
