The final ANZ ACBS (WA) Pub Talk for 2018, ACT & Schema Therapy: Can They Really Work Together?, lived up to its hype. The sold out event had the ambience of a sold out rock concert, with chatter of how everyone had secured their ticket. In true ACBS community fashion, seating had been passed over to make room for more members to attend and everyone huddled around to learn.
Hayes reminded us that Schema Therapy had been designed for treatment resistant clients and that it is “not for everyone”. We were then invited to work together noticing the consistencies and inconsistencies of the models. Hayes and Hart challenged and encouraged flexibility i
The talk inspired questions and a desire to learn more, but more than that, it provided a great space to get together with members of the ANZ ACBS (WA) community. A space to connect, learn, seek and share. Thank you to Chris and Mitch for sharing their knowledge and opening up the conversation.
