This unique resource helps therapists build their skills in schema therapy (ST) by applying ST techniques to themselves and reflecting on the experience. Designed for use by individuals or groups, the book harnesses the power of self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR), an evidence-based training strategy. Twenty modules take therapists step by step through using ST to address a professional or personal problem--from establishing safety and creating a self-conceptualization to implementing mode change work, including cognitive, experiential, and behavioural pattern-breaking interventions. In a convenient large-size format, the book is illustrated with vivid therapist examples and features numerous reproducible worksheets and forms for doing the SP/SR exercises. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
AUDIENCE: Therapists of all levels of experience, including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, counsellors, and psychiatric nurses.
COURSE USE: May serve as a text in graduate-level courses on schema therapy.

“Leading schema therapists Farrell and Shaw draw on their great depth of experience to provide this comprehensive, authoritative guide. As psychotherapists, when our own maladaptive schemas are triggered and we switch into defensive coping modes, our capacity to help our clients becomes significantly limited. Self-practice and self-reflection are fundamental activities for anyone who wants to develop and mature as a schema therapist. The authors offer a clear and accessible account of ST theory and practice that makes it easy to apply, whether we are working with our own process or that of our clients. This lucid book is a valuable resource for therapists seeking to develop their skills as well as trainers and supervisors offering guidance to others.” — David Edwards, PhD, Department of Psychology, Rhodes University, South Africa; President, International Society of Schema Therapy

Studies in the 1950s revealed that young children hospitalized without their parents respond first by crying for them, then by showing signs of despair, and finally by emotionally detaching from the parents and acting indifferent to their absence. This detachment is hard to repair and highly detrimental to a child's development-most children who feel they cannot rely on their parents grow up to become more emotionally insecure and less self-assured than their peers. *The Attachment Connection* sorts out the facts from the fiction about parent-child attachment and shows how paying attention...
