  • Real Pain or Mind Game? Unraveling Complex Somatic Disorders with Schema Therapy

    Co-presented with Khrystina Zhyvaho

    Research shows early relational trauma raises the risk for somatic disorders like GI issues, autoimmune illnesses, skin conditions and chronic pain, This workshop explores schema therapy’s potential for treating such complex conditions.

    We will present a case study of a client whose IBS was alleviated using schema therapy interventions. Attendees will learn how schemas manifest physically and their commonly associated modes. Through lecture, experiential exercises and a detailed client illustration, participants will grasp how schemas and modes impact illness and pain.

    Skills covered include assessing somatic modes, chairwork, movement to access embodied emotions and rescripting to transform maladaptive body memories. Participants will gain concrete techniques for schema based treatment
