Service Description

This Level 1 workshop is for those who are new to or have completed preliminary training in the schema therapy model. Participants will learn the basic principles of the schema therapy model as applied to working with eating disorders. This training will provide guidance and practical experience on implementing techniques for working with entrenched early maladaptive schemas/core beliefs that drive eating disorder behaviours including imagery rescripting, chair work & other techniques for change. Videos and live demonstrations will be used to illustrate experiential change techniques. Training will specifically include working with vulnerable [child] modes, limited reparenting skills, bypassing avoidant or over-compensatory coping modes, and fighting punitive (self-critical) or guilt inducing thinking patterns that drive eating disorder behaviours. LEARNING OUTCOMES: • Participants will learn: • How to recognise & work with schema modes relevant to people with eating disorders. • How to conceptualise clients’ eating disorder symptoms & comorbidities using a schema mode map • How to apply cognitive, experiential, and interpersonal strategies for change, including chairwork & Imagery Rescripting, with an emphasis on deeper level change with core beliefs/schemas ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Dr. Susan Simpson is a Clinical Psychologist with specialist expertise in the treatment of severe and complex eating disorders.
