Interventions to Overcome Treating Personality Disorders

Professor Joan Farrell & Ms Nicola Kenney

November 8th to 9th Adelaide, South Australia

This 2-day Master Class with Joan Farrell. PhD, and Nicola Kenney, MSW is suitable for Schema Therapists at all levels and clinicians who have some knowledge and experience in using the basic schema therapy model, and want to learn more about core schema therapy interventions to work with the issues presented by clients with personality disorders (e.g. Borderline PD, Avoidant PD, Narcissistic PD) and features of these disorders. Day 1 will specifically focus on impasses with clients and day 2 on the impasses these clients present for therapists. Participants will learn ways to identify what the impasses are and help clients work though them. Interventions will include experiential work to connect and get through the resistance of dysfunctional coping styles, imagery rescripting and storytelling to introduce the Vulnerable Child Mode and mode role plays (aka schema mode chair work). For impasses with therapists, exercises will be used from Joan and Ida’s latest book: Learning Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection Workbook for Therapists (Guilford,expected in Fall 2017).  This training can be counted toward the required curriculum for ISST certification in Schema Therapy.

Joan is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, advanced certified Schema Therapist Supervisor-Trainer in Individual and Group and the ISST Executive Board representative for Training & Certification.  This is the 4th and possibly last visit to Australia in person for Joan and her partner, Ida Shaw. They anticipate that after this they will be offering webinars instead and continuing supervision from their comfortable home in Indianapolis with their 3 little Yorkies- Zoe, Ziggy and Zach.
