PRE-CONGRESS WORKSHOP (HALF DAY)

Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder.

Schema Therapy is one of the most effective treatments for borderline personality disorder with a very high treatment retention which indicates high acceptability for patients. For many clinicians schema therapy for borderline personality disorder is a welcome addition to their therapeutic repertoire, given the high prevalence of borderline personality disorder and the difficulties that often arise in attempts to treat these patients. In this workshop an introduction into schema therapy for borderline personality disorder will be offered. The workshop includes a theoretical introduction into schema therapy, the schema mode conceptualization of borderline personality disorder, and the specific way the therapeutic relationship is used (including the concept of limited reparenting). Participants will learn how to make schema mode conceptualizations of their own patients, in collaboration with their patients, that will guide their treatment. Next, participants will be offered explanations and life or video examples of the most important techniques per mode. The most important will practiced in pairs whilst supervision is offered.
