Product Description

Review

"Useful verbatim examples are given for treatment of several types of patients... A very good book, and I highly recommend it to both novice and veteran therapists." - Psychiatric Times

"A rich and highly informative text that outlines the principles of the schema model, schema assessment and evaluation, and all the major components of schema therapy... The richness of the clinical material is enough to give practitioners a basic understanding of how to apply schema therapy... An insightful, innovative, and thorough treatment approach to personality pathology." - Journal of Psychosomatic Research

"This is a superb volume, reflecting many years of astute clinical and theoretical work by very able clinicians... It should appeal to psychotherapy integrationists from many traditions." - Psychotherapy Research

"This volume demonstrates in a skillful, highly readable fashion how the standard cognitive therapy approaches to Axis 1 disorders can be expanded and modified to treat personality disorders... Highly recommended for all therapists engaged in treating patients with these very difficult personality problems." - Aaron T. Beck, University of Pennsylvania, USA

There are some books in the field of cognitive psychotherapy, which take the reader to a realistic and fascinating trip in the realm of psychotherapy. This is one of them. It is full of practical wisdom, its theoretical background is understandable and the process of therapy is beautiful.
The book keeps the reader on the seat, the language and syntax is working well. I liked very much the description of imagery technics and therapeutical relationship with the therapists own schemas, which very covered well in the book. I could find me and my narcissistic patient well on the pages dealing psychotherapy of narcissist personality disorder.
The book integrates beckian, schematherapy and experiential techniques, deals attachement of bowlby, reciprocality of cogn.analalytic therapy and even some counter transference issues.
Lovely book.

Goes into far greater depth about how to develop solutions to overcome lifetraps than "Reinventing Your Life does.

Its obviously written for therapists, but you can adapt the techniques into self-help techniques

Im not saying it should replace individual therapy, it just helps if you want to DIY schema therapy

Schema Therapy has helped me to integrate the things I have been doing as a therapist. It combines the best of the structure that CBT provides with a pragmatic, depth-oriented approach that gets at the things that CBT cannot. Best of all, the therapist gets to bring him or herself into the therapeutic encounter (think the genuineness that is often left out of Person-Centred Therapy). Really good stuff. The book is similar to reading Yalom's text on group therapy that you will get more out if it after repeated readings. Highly recommended!

As an integrative trained counsellor and psychotherapist, I am approximately a third of the way through this book, and I LOVE it. It's simple, though packed with the material. Lays out some comparison and contrast with other models. Is consistent in it's defence of this being integrative as opposed to eclectic - and it's not just that I love the book, I mean specifically I am enjoying it. It feels very useful. A lot there to absorb, but beautifully and simply styled. And though it would take time, committment on my part to fully practise this model, I feel immediately I can put aspects to use, and gradually increase my use of more of the techniques. As a highlight, I can theoretically understand some of what I have intuitively done, which will make life and supervision a lot easier going forward. Best of luck to the next reader. My only reservation to experienced practitioners would be that unfortunately I am not as well read as some therapists, so I will be interested to see how very well read practitioners find it.

I highky recommend this book. It's a breath of fresh air for treating clients with long-standing treatment resistant issues. This book is more detailed and explanatory than "Reinventing Your Life" by the same authors. It seems more honest about what the authors & colleagues think about people with personality issues and emotional dysregulation problems. The main ideas are to accept past trauma as being a "natural response" or part of being born overly emotional. No-one is to blame as the abuser etc couldn't find another way to deal with the clients hyper-emotionality as a child. The client is not to blame as they did the best they could at the time. The client then is brought to accept reality and the need for change. The client learns about their own dysfunctional beliefs, thoughts & behaviours (schemas) and begin a process of standard CBT techniques to erradicate these dysfunctions. What makes Schema Therapy different from standard CBT is the ability to help the client connect their current problems to past schema's, to externalise the schema before destroying it, thereby not giving the client the sense that the self is being destroyed.

What is not clear is the difference between Complex Trauma (or Complex Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Borderline Personailty Disorder. The reader is left wandering whether they are one and the same condition. This results in a sense that perpetrators of abuse couldn't help themselves abuse the client and can walk away with impunity, while the client has to accept and "move on" with life.

Certainly the book is aimed at the practitioner rather than the client. I can't help but wander why there is such a marked difference.

I have a borderline personality disorder and I finally understood the mechanism of my mind, which makes it easier for me to grasp how my brain functions. Ever since I read that one chapter, I have found hope and motivation to get DBT therapy congruent with Schema.

Unlike many others, this is not, properly, a practice guide. Nonetheless is full of brief interviews with BPD clients and the authors add many tricks and tips for dealing with each session. But, i.p.o.v., lacks exercises, protocols, records, tables, and most of what chartered psychologists use with clients to up to date the treatment improvements.
Regarding theory is quite a bit stodgy, while I myself find a lot more worthvalue those insights developed by Linehan and Mclean Hospital, whose books are plenty of forms, daily cards and guided practice.
