Course Breakdown:

Part 1: Overcoming potential gaps in clinical assessment by employing emotional evaluation

You will be presented with an introduction to Dr Carmelita’s own background and training which has lead him to have expertise in the topics he has addressed in this workshop. The aim of the course is to transform your own clinical practice into a more experiential one through the use of  imagery exercises or imagery rescripting. These exercises allow you to work on the emotional side of your patients personalities in the here and now of therapy. Dr Carmelita draws on his background in cognitive behavioral therapy and schema therapy but he teaches how to incorporate these imagery experiences into your practice no matter what approach you favor. You will examine the different implications of clinical assessment and how it informs the beginning and development of the therapist-client relationship.

Part 2: Overcoming potential gaps in clinical assessment by employing emotional evaluation continued 

In the second video from the course, Dr Carmelita explains how he realised the importance of these imagery exercises based on his own experience as a child doing therapy. You will then delve into the theory underpinning the Imagery exercise and how they can be used in the assessment phase. You will be presented with experiential imagery exercises created by Jeffery Young used which you can practice with yourself or with your patients.

Part 3: Overcoming potential gaps in clinical assessment by employing emotional evaluation continued 

In this part,  you will explore the more nuanced aspect of interweaving this newly acquired practice into the assessment and therapy phases, so that it becomes a natural part of your clinical work. Dr Carmelita will discuss the imagery exercises which can be done during the therapy phase. In addition to explaining the stages and how the exercises will be carried out, he highlights the common mistakes which can be made when approaching imagery practices with patients. Though they may seem trivial, these mistakes may jeopardise the quality of experience for the patient and effect the final results.

Part 4: Demonstrating Imagery Work and identifying common mistakes to avoid

Watch clinical examples with actors who play the patients ‘Viola’ and ‘Massimo’ with real-time analysis. Dr. Carmelita thoroughly explores and examines each case study to instruct you in your practice. This will help you get an idea of how to carry out imagery exercises in therapy. You may approach therapy from a different reference model and each patient presents different issues and experiences. Therefore, this video can serve as an outline which you can adapt from patient to patient. You will also be introduced to another highly effective imagery exercise, not specific to schema therapy, which focuses on attachment.

Part 5: Demonstrating Imagery Work and identifying common mistakes to avoid continued 

In the final video from the series, Dr Carmelita reflects on the examples  you saw in the previous video. Grasp the underlying logic to become confident in using and adapting the Imagery Work exercise in your practice.
