Workshop details

This 1-day workshop is specifically developed for
Schema therapists who want to refine their skills
in the use of Chair work. Chair work is
considered to be an important technique within
schema therapy. With this technique, schema
therapists can work on schema’s and modes on
an experiential level, allowing the patient to
internalize meaningful, healthier messages.
Many therapists experience this technique to be
difficult. Either they feel themselves not
experienced enough since it’s not their usual way
of working with patients. Or they encounter
specific challenging situations that haven’t been
covered in their basic ST training, e.g. the coping
mode is so strong that it doesn’t make any
difference to let the patient sit in the chair of the
Vulnerable Child mode.

This training course aims
to provide specific methods to fine tune the
already existing skills of the participants in order
to make them more effective and efficient in
working with parent- and or coping modes. In
order to make this workshop successful there will
be a lot of role play exercises in which the
participants have to practice the demonstrated

Topics that will be covered on this day:!
-Strong coping modes blocking the patient from
connecting to their emotions!
-Strong parent modes !
-Mode flipping; how to deal with the patient
constantly flipping from one mode to another!
The use of chairs in strengthening the Healthy Adult
