Training & Events

We appreciate the effort and time it takes for you to take a day or two out from your schedule to attend professional development events. With that in mind, we endeavour to make all our workshops pleasant events for you. We choose quality venues and offer full-day catering with a sit-down lunch (usually a hot and cold buffet is on offer). We know it’s nice to have something special when you make the time to come to an event. We want to give you that little bit of extra care and attention. Book early to avoid disappointment as most of or workshop cater for a maximum of 20-25 people to allow for smaller, more comfortable group discussions and more individual attention. The retreat however, will take 15 people only.

      Workshop Description

      Connecting with and healing vulnerable child parts of self is at the heart of good schema therapy. Often we need to explore many layers of vulnerability and in doing so we may discover several early wounded parts, some of which developed very early in life.

      The abandonment schema for example, often has its origins in pre-verbal experiences (sometimes referred to as vulnerable infant modes). When such deep schemas are triggered in later life, our clients are often left feeling bewildered, confused and even frightened by their immense feelings and reactions (ie, there may be no words to describe how they are feeling).
      healing the vulnerable child

      The abandonment schema can be thought of as the most primitive of all the early schemas and the one with the most pervasive and far-reaching impact across the life span.

      One of the key therapeutic aims in schema therapy is to enable the client to access, reconnect with and re-parent vulnerable parts of self and to guide the client toward greater self-acceptance, self-compassion and psychological integration.

      This practical one-day workshop focuses on this particular aim and expands both the conceptualization of and the methods we can use to identify and begin to heal these early emotional wounds.

       

       

      Topics include:

      • Defining the concept of the ‘vulnerable child’ mode, its origins and the rationale for working at depth with these modes.
      • An in-depth look at ‘abandonment’ and its life-long impact upon relationships and other adult adjustments.
      • Therapeutic tools to access and work with vulnerable child parts and early abandonment wounds.
      • Strategies for activating and healing pre-verbal abandonments.
      • Creative homework tasks (post-session & between sessions) for clients to foster reconnection and integration with previously disavowed child/infant parts.
