Participants are introduced to a schema-focused cognitive therapy approach to treating patients with personality disorders and other chronic, self-defeating problems. Dr. Young demonstrates how he adapted traditional cognitive therapy techniques to provide a more effective treatment method for patients with narcissistic, borderline, passive-aggressive, dependent, and other personality disorders, as well as for chronic dysthymic and anxious patients. The schema-focused approach integrates cognitive behavior therapy with gestalt, object relations, and psychoanalytic approaches.
