New DVD/ Video and Streaming

Fine Tuning Chair Work in Schema Therapy -A 3 DVD set and Video Streaming  Out now!

Chair work is often considered as one of the most effective components of experiential work in Schema Therapy. The approach can be a dynamic and stimulating way to assist in schema mode dialogues, and its use can allow for clear and productive methods in working with schema modes. However, clinicians frequently note that they lack confidence in utilising this approach.

This three-disk DVD series demonstrates various forms of chair-work that could be readily integrated and utilized within schema therapy practice. In addition, several scenes demonstrate the use of chair work in non-schema therapy situations, such as within cognitive behaviour therapy and working with addictions. 

This resource aims to provide those beginning to use chair work in Schema Therapy  a solid foundation to develop skills. It addition, it provides more experienced therapists with methods to manage more difficult and challenging situations that are typically observed in clinical contexts.  

34 chair work based scenes are included, displaying the skills of four experienced Schema Therapists: Chris Hayes (Australia); Remco van der Wijngaart (The Netherlands); Sally Skewes (Australia); and Kirsty Gillings (United Kingdom).

"I would say that this is a must-see video for anyone who wants to learn Schema Therapy and a highly-recommended video for those who wish to develop their Chairwork skills"

Scott Kellogg PHD, Advanced Schema Therapist, Transformational Chair Work

Fine Tuning Imagery Rescripting- 3 DVD Set and Video Stream

The DVD hard copy is now available to purchase (see our shop to purchase), and we hope to also be able to provide a video download later in the year.  35 imagery-based scenes are included in the 3 DVD set, displaying the skills of three experienced therapists- Remco van der Wijngaart (Netherlands); Chris Hayes (Australia); and Susan Simpson (Australia).

"This DVD set gives a broad and comprehensive overview on almost all aspects of imagery rescripting including the most frequent pitfalls. Probably unnecessary to say that the technical quality is brilliant too. A real treasure for all therapist wanting to learn more about this powerful and safe technique!" Eckhard Roediger MD, President, International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST)
