Schema Therapy for

Addiction Treatment

Addictive Disorders and Behaviours are a mixed bunch. Addictions can include drugs, alcohol, spending, gambling and sex to name some of the most prevalent substances and processes. These are some of the most challenging behaviors we face as therapists. We sometimes feel powerless, hopeless, frustrated and even, at times, judgmental toward these seemingly self-destructive behaviors.

This online course covers a overview of the concepts and techniques of schema theory and therapy (ST) as it relates to the conceptualization of addictive 'behaviours' and 'modes'. This includes the origins and development of modes specific to addictions, as well as core experiential, interpersonal, cognitive and behavioral change techniques for intervention. Participants will be shown how to conceptualize addictions in a way which makes working with people who struggle with addictions easier to understand, empathically confront and engage in the treatment room. Schema Therapy is well-suited for this population due to high comorbidity rates (66-78%) of personality disorders and trauma, and a track record of working with complex issues. Participants will learn ways they can help clients to build a healthy adult self while healing attachment and other core needs.

Training can be viewed at your own time and pace. There will be access to live Zoom Q&A Meetings with Liz (recorded) and discussion forums to encourage active engagement and learning. The material will be made available to registrants for a further 6-weeks after the completion of the course (so 16-weeks access in total).

As this is a masterclass course - It is recommended that attendees have a basic understanding of the schema mode model prior to the course.

A certificate will be provided for a total of 16-Hours CPD. The course can be completed at your own pace.
