Patricia Escudero Rotman

  • Biography

    Dr. Patricia Escudero Rotman has been in practice for more than 25 years, both in the United States (mostly in New York City) and Argentina. She is a Clinical Psychologist licensed in Argentina, with a PhD. in Health and Human Services (specialization in Psychology) and a New York Social Work License. Dr. Rotman is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. As a faculty member, she created the Schema Therapy class for third and fourth-year residents. Patricia began her Schema Therapy training in 2004 New York City with Dr. Jeffrey Young, Wendy Behary, Joan Farrell, Ida Shaw, and Scott Kellogg. When living in New York City, she participated in a weekly peer supervision group (that included Jeff Conway, Marsha Blank, Travis Atkinson, Scott Kellogg, and Janet Klosko), which further refined her Schema Therapy clinical skills. Her active participation in the Schema Therapy Community allows her to continue learning from experts such as Wendy Behary and Joan Farrell. Her clinical experience related to acute trauma includes working in a triage clinic in the aftermath of the World Trade Center tragedy, assisting victims of Hurricane Andrew in Miami, and helping family members and mental health professionals impacted by suicide. She co-founded the ISST Trauma SIG and has coordinated this group since 2016. She has training in several therapeutic approaches (e.g., DBT, Compassion Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic therapies) but has specialized in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Schema Therapy. She has made several presentations about trauma both at ISST conferences and in international webinars. After living in the US for 23 years, Dr. Escudero Rotman moved back to Argentina in 2015, where she developed and directed an official Schema Therapy training program in Buenos Aires. She has given many Schema Therapy presentations to professional associations in Latin America (e.g., the Association of Argentinean Psychiatry and the Argentinean Medical Association). Her expertise includes acute and complex trauma, migration, multicultural issues, and integrating therapeutic approaches with the Schema Therapy model.

    Patricia is a supervisor with the New Jersey, New York, and Washington DC Schema Therapy Centers,ed directed by Wendy Behary and Dr. Jeffrey Young. She enjoys doing therapy (mostly online), clinical supervision, leading workshops, directing the Argentinean-American Schema Therapy Institute, and collaborating and learning from colleagues. Her international orientation and fluency in four languages (English, Spanish, French, and Italian) enable her to extend the availability of her knowledge and skills as a trainer, supervisor, and clinician. Based on her clinical experience, Patricia believes that our Schema Therapy model can help individuals with acute trauma. She hopes that more schema therapists, both clinicians and researchers, will develop an interest in this field to expand our knowledge and effectiveness in treating these patients.

  • Patients who have Recent and Acute Trauma.

    Co-Presented with Samantha Flores

    Evidence suggests that most individuals who have experienced a recent trauma will recover independently. Given this general understanding, should we offer clinical treatment? Which evidence-based models have proven to be effective in treating trauma victims? Can Schema Therapy be effective in treating acute trauma patients? Are Imagery Rescripting and Mode Dialogues effective interventions for acute trauma? What adaptations do we need to consider when working with this population? How can we help patients with acute trauma encourage their Healthy Adult Mode to become more resilient? Is it possible to prevent the long-term effects of trauma such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with Scheme Therapy as an early intervention? These are some of the topics that we will be addressing in this webinar. Clinical Videos and a role play with the audience will be included.
