Are you looking for novel ways to increase your skills and capacity to increase corrective emotional experiences in clients? Have you delayed doing using emotional focused techniques such as imagery because of your own anxieties about your practice? 

Imagery re-scripting is a key aspect of schema therapy and a powerful experiential tool for change. Furthermore, research over the last 4 years has focused how imagery work can be utilized as a standalone treatment for childhood trauma (Arntz, 2013). This workshop will focus specifically on how therapists can become more skilled in developing strong corrective emotional experiences that result in significant emotional cognitive and behavioural change. 

This workshop will focus on the use of imagery rescripting to treat childhood related post-traumatic stress and associated problems. In addition, the workshop will discuss ways to enhance imagery rescripting skills within a schema therapy context. Topics covered include; providing a rationale, therapeutic underpinnings of imagery rescripting, the practice of imagery rescripting for childhood related trauma, ways to improve imagery rescripting in treatment, ways to bypass avoidance and “roadblocks” to effective change. The workshop will allow attendees to observe and practice skills.
