SCHEMA THERAPY TRAINING :TLH CLINICAL SEMINAR SERIES PRESENTS
THE LIGHTHOUSE ARABIA – CENTER FOR WELLBEING IS PLEASED TO PRESENT A THREE-DAY SCHEMA FOCUSED THERAPY TRAINING.
ABOUT SCHEMA THERAPY Schema Therapy is an integrative therapy, combining aspects of cognitive, behavioural, psychodynamic, attachment and Gestalt models. It sees the cognitive and behavioural aspects as vital to treatment, as in standard CBT, but gives equal weight to emotional change, experiential techniques and the therapeutic relationship. Like CBT, it is structured, systematic and specific. Schema Therapy’s theoretical roots are firmly embedded in attachment theory; its main premise being that psychological pathology develops from unmet core emotional needs in childhood leading to the development of Early Maladaptive Schema. Originally developed for work with adults who have a diagnosis of personality disorder, schema therapy is primarily aimed at treating those who have entrenched interpersonal and self-identity difficulties and can be effective in working with individuals and couples. THIS TRAINING IS SUITABLE FOR • Psychologists • Psychotherapists • Counselors • Psychiatrists who are experienced in psychotherapy
The training meets the International Society of Schema Therapist (ISST) requirements towards accreditation as a Schema Therapist. In order to be accredited, individuals must meet further requirements and should be educated to a Masters level, and be licensed to practice.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN In this training participants will be taught through didactic presentations, experiential exercises and role plays and will gain: • In-depth understanding of the schema therapy model • Learn the tools and techniques of schema therapy • Experiential learning of schema therapy application
