More about the course

Schedule therapy is a transdiagnostic model for the treatment of relationship problems, complex symptoms and personality disorders. It originates in KBT, but also integrates theories and methodology from other therapy schools.

Here you have a greater understanding of the growth and what it has had for consequences for our behavior. Many develop strategies to avoid dealing with difficult emotional situations.

The course teaches a systematic application of central schematic therapeutic interventions to overcome dysfunctional coping (interpersonal change), achieve intrapsychic change (schemalinking), as well as change in dysfunctional life relationships ("life list"). The teaching is based on the participants working with their own schedules and modes in parades.
