This workshop will address how to elicit and systematically change core beliefs (schemas) with Axis II patients. Topics include the constructive use of transference reactions as a therapeutic tool, and the management of hostility and excessive dependency. The use of imagery and role playing, and the applications of childhood material will be reviewed. A cognitive conceptualization of a case will be given. Ways to handle problems such as missed sessions, prolonging sessions, avoidance, and homework noncompliance will be addressed.
Cloe Madanes will discuss some of the varieties of abuse which can occur in a family, with an emphasis on incest and sexual abuse. A method for dealing with such situations will be presented and illustrated with a videotape.
