617 Treating Borderline Personality Disorder

Joan Farrell & Ida Shaw • Sunday All Day
locatioN: SUite 215E

Joan FarrellIda ShawSchema Therapy addresses the problems presented by borderline personality disorder (BPD) clients from the bottom up—starting with underlying early maladaptive schemas that result from early-life emotional needs not being met.
This workshop offers the Group Schema Therapy approach to helping BPD clients get in touch with their core unmet needs, experience them being safely met, and break schema-driven life patterns. You’ll learn central Schema Therapy interventions, such as:

  • Limited reparenting to establish a safe, connected “group-family” in which deep-level schema work can be accomplished
  • Empathic confrontation to get through detachment and dissociation while providing validation and nurturance
  • Imagery rescripting to heal the effects of complex trauma

Joan Farrell, PhD, and Ida Shaw, MA, are codirectors of the Indianapolis Center of the Schema Therapy Institute Midwest. They’ve given workshops internationally for over 20 years. Joan is an adjunct professor of clinical psychology and research and training director of the Indiana University School of Medicine Center for BPD Treatment
