Workshop details

This workshop will present a model for approaching and treating fashion clashes with adolescents (ages 12-25) and their parents. Schematherapie (ST) met kinderen en adolescenten gebruikt een ontwikkelings-en systemische aanpak. Når du ser på problematik og behov hos adolescentkunder, er det viktig at huske på utviklingsstadiet din klient er fysisk, kognitiv, emosjonell og i samfunnsutvikling. De relationer en adolescent har hjemme hos foreldrene og i andre vigtige miljøer må være adressert som en del av ST. Het modelle model kan worden gebruikt om de probleemgedrag van deze kritieke ontwikkelingsperiode aan beide adolescenten en hun ouders te verklaren. The concept of fashion clashes is a productive way to describe and address these problems. It can remove blame, and facilitates getting through impasses in these important relationships. The fashion clash approach includes looking at underlying needs and how they can be met. Het veranderen van de familiedynamische op deze manier kan zelfs preventieve effecten hebben voor adolescenten.

Participants will learn how to identify these fashion clashes, present them to adolescent clients and their parents and use Schedule Therapy interventions to work through them so that the underlying needs are better measured. Der vil være særlig vægt på kreativt erfaringsarbejde. We zullen de mijlpalen van elke ontwikkelingsfase onderzoeken, de effect die ze kunnen hebben op modi en schema's en de modeclusters die kunnen optreden als ouder en kind / adolescentbehoeften zijn anders. The workshop will focus on practice: demonstration of the interventions and opportunities for participant practice with coaching and discussion. There will be a brief didactic presentation as introduction. The workshop hours can be used towards the ISST certificate in Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy. De timer kan alternativt blive brugt til at opfylde den fortsatte uddannelsesbehov for at vedligeholde ISST-certifikatet.
