Schematherapy for Couples – the modular approach
An ISST-approved ONLINE training program in Schema therapy for Couples

Organized by Eckhard Roediger
Start: 08th  April 2024
End:  24th June 2024
The 30 hours training is in English language. We will meet on 12 Mondays between 12.00 to 2.30 pm CET, It covers the whole content on the ISST guidelines for couples therapy.
Location: Online

About this training:
The schema therapy model describes how unmet core needs lead to maladaptive schemas and coping behavior. Unfortunately, schema chemistry plays an important role when we choose our partners. So we often find ourselves in the same complementary roles that we got used to in childhood and fight the former significant others in our partners by mutually “pushing our buttons” in escalating mode cycles.

Besides working with couples from the very beginning, we can also start working with one partner and include the other partner later to a smaller or greater extend. Including the partner starts with thinking about him or her in therapy. The curriculum addresses both: Starting with one partner and including the other or starting with the couple right away. The approach focusses on the in-session presentation of the mode cycles. It is based on a module system serving as handrails guiding the therapist through the course of therapy.

The training adapts the schema therapy model on interpersonal mode cycles, describes and trains the steps to get out of them by stopping the cycles, shift into a healthy adult mode, re-balance the basic needs, reconnect emotionally in imagery and initiate a constructive communication style in demonstrations and dyadic role-play. This will enable the participants to start working with dysfunctional interpersonal patterns in various settings.
