Workshop ‘Fine-tuning Imagery Rescripting’

See agenda for the course dates, locations and the registration form.

Imagery rescripting is generally regarded as one of the most effective techniques within schema therapy. However, it is often difficult to apply this technique. For instance, therapists are regularly faced with challenging situations in which, for example, the client says ‘I have no memories of my childhood’ or ‘I don’t want to dredge up those old memories, what would be the point of that?’. Furthermore, patients have often been so damaged by their childhoods that childhood memories are very emotionally charged. As a result, therapists are inhibited from using imagery to bring back images from that charged past for fear of decompensation.

This 2-day workshop aims to make therapists more proficient in applying imagery rescripting. Existing skills will be refined and challenging situations discussed and practised. During the workshop, use will be made of recently developed teaching materials specifically focused on imagery exercises and based on the most recent insights and experiences of this method. Specialist fields of application will also be discussed, such as imagery rescripting in flash-forwards and nightmares.

The workshop is aimed at therapists who are already working with Imagery with Rescripting and who wish to increase their skills and the effectiveness of this intervention.

The objective is that this day should be an enjoyable, educational experience involving a lot of practice within a secure atmosphere, in order to enable the therapists to apply imagery rescripting more often and more effectively.
