David's Bernstein invitation
"I don't want to dredge up those old memories"
When a therapist is attacked, demeaned, or disrespected by a patient, it can push therapists out of their comfort zones, leaving them feeling ineffective.
"I have no memories of my childhood"
Learn how to respond when patients cross therapists' boundaries
Сhildhood memories are very emotionally charged
Through their work with forensic patients who tend to cross boundaries, David and Limor have developed methods that therapists can apply when boundary violations occur in any setting.
You will learn
To combine principles and practices from Schema Therapy, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
To work in the here and now with patients' emotional states, known as "schema modes"
To recognize the modes that violate boundaries
To "recruit your Healthy Adult mode" to manage your own emotional reactions when violations occur
To choose the proper intervention in order to manage with boundary violation
