Group schema therapy for borderline personality disorder

Feb 6, 2012 - 5:00:00 AM
Group Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder is an outgrowth of training therapists to participate in the multi-site international study and a new window into this powerful approach. It is a total package for practitioners, interested patients and family members in its combination of theoretical, conceptual, empirical and highly practical information. This includes Therapist tips for the application of techniques and patient workbook materials accessed on the Wiley website. The principle authors of this book, Joan Farrell, Ph.D. and Ida Shaw, M.A. developed the original Group Schema Therapy model over a period of 25 years and conducted the first randomized controlled trial to test its effectiveness. They are recognized internationally as the primary trainers and supervisors of Group Schema Therapy. While this book is focused on the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and the all BPD group,like individual ST, Group ST can be adapted to other personality disorders and entrenched interpersonal problems frequently seen in patients suffering from anxiety and depression who present in practice for longer term psychotherapy. Research is underway to test adaptations of this model for Inpatient and Day therapy treatment of BPD, use with other personality disorder patients, mixed groups and the forensic population.

 
[RxPG] Therapists, patients and families dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder now have an unprecedented guide to a way out of the misery and chaos in the form of the soon to be release book Group Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder: Treatment Manual and Patient Workbook. In a series of recent studies ( Giesen-Bloo et al., 2006; Nadort et al., 2009; Farrell, Shaw and Webber, 2009), Schema Therapy (both individual and group forms) has been shown to lead to full recovery across the complete range of symptoms for many patients suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder. Through these studies, Schema Therapy was shown to be more than twice as effective in bringing about full recovery as a widely-practiced traditional treatment (Transference Focused Psychotherapy). Schema Therapy was also found to be more cost-effective and to have a much lower dropout rate. When Group Schema Therapy was added to individual psychotherapy, it was found to lead to even stronger outcomes over a briefer period with a 0% drop out rate and a recovery rate of 94% over a span of 8 months. These promising results have lead to the initiation of a large multi-site international study involving 14 treatment sites spanning 6 countries. Preliminary data from this investigation suggest similarly strong outcomes.
