Fine-tuning Imagery Rescripting

Organised by Remco van der Wijngaart & Hannie van Genderen


Imagery rescripting is generally regarded as one of the most effective techniques within schema therapy. It is also an effective stand alone treatment for anxiety disorders such as Social Anxiety Disorder, PTSD and more recently Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. However, in clinical practice it is still 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 online training aims to make therapists more proficient in applying imagery rescripting. Existing skills will be refined and challenging situations discussed and practiced. During the workshop, use will be made of In a recently published book: ‘Imagery Rescripting, theory and practice’ by Remco van der Wijngaart (June 2021, Pavilion Publishing).
