About the course

How do you break through the negative patterns of your most difficult couples? Most likely, one or both partners has a "raw spot" that leads him or her to react in rigid, habitual ways that can derail even the most well-intended couples therapy.

Until now, no couples therapy has been developed specifically to address more severe couples where one or both partners have what is commonly diagnosed as personality disorders. If you practice Schedule Therapy, you know that it is a complete therapeutic model created to help therapists effectively change ingrained aspects of character commonly associated with personality disorders. Applied to couples, the model targets schemes and modes that lead to distress in a love relationship.

De samme klinisk-beprøvede model som har resulteret i betydelige ændringer i individuelle og gruppe modaliteter for flere personlighedsforstyrrelser, herunder Borderline Personality Disorder, har nu vært ansatt for å hjelpe skjema terapeuter som deg til «team up» med begge partnere i et forhold til begge repair distress, and to heal past relationship injuries.

Du kan bruke Schema Therapy-færdigheder og viden, som du har fået gennem de enkelte grupper, eller børn og ungdoms specialiteter og systematisk anvende dem på relationer ved hjælp af Schema Couples Therapy model. Practitioners of Schedule Couples Therapy know that working with partners in a love relationship effectively requires much more than using Schedule Therapy with two individuals in a session.

We zullen u helpen om de complexiteit van Schema Therapie te verduidelijken wanneer u aan de dynamiek van toepassing past, dat het model op een manier kan worden gebruikt die eenvoudig kan worden gebruikt, en wat kan chaotisch zijn om te komen tot een meer orderlijke verbinding.
