Usually, beginning early in life, negative patterns of thought interfere with the person’s ability to reach goals. Schema-Focused Cognitive Therapy begins with an assessment of the patterns involved, followed by clients enhancing their emotional awareness of these patterns in daily life, and ultimately replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. Schema related treatment approaches have been shown to be effective for a variety of difficult to treat conditions. However, the long-term nature of pure schema therapy is not a fit for all clients in all settings. Thus, many professionals find themselves scratching their heads for effective alternatives to more quickly meet the needs of a segment of their caseloads.

Most practitioners are familiar with standard CBT which offers a variety of tools and techniques helpful for managing symptoms. But few are versed in the deeper schema-level work that is necessary for truly treating the most challenging conditions seen in the clinical setting. Schema modification treatments offer a refreshing hybrid between dynamic, insight-oriented approaches and evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy, incorporating attachment theory, psychodynamic concepts, and emotion-focused techniques as well. Also, in comparison to traditional CBT, Schema-Focused Therapy emphasizes identifying and changing lifelong patterns, and utilizes the therapeutic relationship in a powerful way to leverage deeper level change, making it particularly well suited for complex, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological challenges. Schema-based techniques have proven themselves capable of modifying underlying meaning at “the root” of client’s presenting problems without sacrificing practical “here and now” interventions. Join Dr Jeff Riggenbach, the internationally known and three-time bestselling author, in this highly engaging online course, and learn new tools for treating your most challenging client symptoms sets including:

•Easily Triggered Out of Proportion Impulsive Responses
•Emotional Dysregulation
•Resistance to Change
•Self-Destructive Behaviors
•Poor Awareness/Insight
•Rule breaking and other antisocial behaviors
•Treatment resistant depression and more!
