Schema therapy for Cluster-C Personality Disorders

For many clinicians schema therapy for cluster-C personality disorders is a welcome addition to their therapeutic repertoire, given the high prevalence of cluster-C patients and their resistance to change. In this workshop an introduction into schema therapy for cluster-C personality disorders will be off ered. The workshop includes a theoretical introduction into schema therapy, schema mode conceptualizations of cluster-C personality disorders, and the specifi c way the therapeutic relationship is used (including the concept of limited reparenting). Participants will learn how to make schema mode conceptualizations of their own patients, in collaboration with their patients, that will guide their treatment. Next, participants will be off ered explanations and life or video examples of the most important techniques per mode. Issues related to breaking through persistent behavioral patterns (avoidance, dependence, perfectionism), and stimulating autonomy and independence of therapy are discussed. If time permits, participants are invited to practice a specifi c technique in pairs whilst the presenter will be available for supervision if needed.

Direct diagnosis of emotional contributors to somatic problems using Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy

In this workshop, we will review a metapsychology of unconscious operations derived by Habib Davanloo from 40 years of video based research. Using this evidence based framework direct interviewing is used to activate unprocessed impulses/feelings, unconscious anxiety and unconscious defenses that result in somatic and health anxiety presen
tations. Five mechanisms of somatization will be illustrated and the treatment techniques for each will be reviewed
