Workshop: Stuck in Patterns
“The child is in me still and sometimes not so still.”
― Fred Rogers
Based on Jeffrey Young’s Schema Therapy, our behaviours can be seen as guided by our inner voices, in order to fulfill our needs. In this workshop we will ask the following questions: how do these voices influence the beliefs about our Self and the world around us? Where do these voices stem from? What are our coping mechanisms and what triggers them? How can we actively change these patterns?
Following the Schema approach, the workshop will present ways of acknowledging and connecting with the vulnerable parts in ourselves, and begin to understand our own patterns in life. By learning how to listen to the voices of demanding or punitive parents, the voice of the vulnerable or angry child, one can strengthen the voice of the Self of today.
Meet your vulnerabilities with compassion instead of contempt and, as a result, you will take home some novel practices to meet underlying needs in a better way.
Registration is required for this workshop.
