Schema Therapy / Two Day Workshop

Date: Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 November 2018
Time: Day 1: 10am - 4.30pm, Day 2: 9.30am - 4pm
Book online: Book here
Description:

Schema Therapy and/or schema informed practice is increasingly being used within a range of criminal justice settings. The application of schema therapy in forensic contexts can be challenging due to pre-existing cultures and narratives about care and punishment.

This workshop aims to provide an overview of the schema therapy model within the context of forensic settings, and to explore the challenges in using experiential techniques for the purpose of the principle aims; limited re-parenting and empathic confrontation. It is necessary to make sense of, and work effectively with, the antisocial dimension of the individuals, whilst holding in mind the often extensive unmet needs from childhood that underpin the complex presentations encountered in adulthood.

The workshop will be aimed at those both new to and familiar with Schema Therapy and who are adapting its use to a range of criminal justice settings.

All learning materials, lunch and refreshments are included.

Location: University of Kent, Canterbury Campus
Registration fee: £300 per person
Contact: For more information please contact Jackie Fotheringham on +44(0)1227 824804 or email J.C.Fotheringham@kent.ac.uk
