Product Description

Published USA, 2003
Designed to bring about lasting change in clients with personality disorders and other complex difficulties, Schema Therapy combines cognitive-behavioural techniques with elements of interpersonal, experiential and psychodynamic therapies. This book - written by the model's developer and two of its leading practitoners - is the first major text for clinicians wishing to learn and use this integrative approach. Provided in one volume are a conceptual overview and step-by-step guidelines for assessment and treatment. Clinicians learn innovative ways to rapidly conceptualize challenging cases, explore the client's childhood history, identify and modify self-defeating behavioural patterns, use imagery and other experiential techniques in treatment, and maximize the power of the therapeutic relationship.
