Schema Therapy - A Phase-Oriented Approach

Targeting Tasks and Techniques in Individual and Group Schema Therapy
Table of

This practical guide presents an innovative approach to managing individual and group schema therapy. By structuring the overall therapeutic process into four distinct phases, each with specific attitudes, goals and exercises, the therapist and client can work together, one step at a time, toward a successful outcome. The book offers clear guidelines for achieving an optimal balance between confrontation and collaboration, between cognitive, behavioural and experiential techniques, between rules and freedom, and between work and play. Phase 1 focuses on safety and security; phase 2 rocks the boat in stirring up old pain and emotions, phase 3 encourages the client to take control and try new things, and phase 4 is about reinventing yourself and learning to live happily as a human being - with all its associated pain and pitfalls. Each chapter contains a wealth of phase-specific exercises, points of concern and practical tips.
