Event description

Description

Schema Focussed Approaches in CBT

PRESENTER: Dr Sanjay Rao, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of Ottawa

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Schemas are not just beliefs but entire experiences. Schema is a term used in many different ways in cognitive behavioural therapies and very rarely translates to clear, crisp interventions. Schemas are a useful approach to managing difficult emotions in cognitive behavioural practice.

This workshop will start with a history and overview of understanding the concept of schemas across cognitive behavioural therapies. From this viewpoint, we will review why and when to do schema work and when it is unnecessary. Appropriate reference to literature and case examples will be made.

The workshop will discuss both generic/transdiagnostic and specific approaches to schema formulation. The latter requires specific schema models across different mental health conditions and personality disorders. This includes how and when to use schema focussed approaches.

Participants will be presented with a useable map to understand schema’s and enhance effectiveness and the therapeutic alliance in clinical practice through this approach.
