Dr. Eckhard Roediger

I am mostly working as Trainer in German speaking countries, but due to my activities for the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST) and some publications in English the interest in my work grew over the past years. My major contribution to the future development of schema therapy is the recently published book: „Contextual Schema Therapy“. It describes how a 3rd wave perspective deepens our understanding of a Healthy Adult mode and helps fine-tuning imagery work and chair dialogues. Besides that it outlines the theoretical underpinnings of schema therapy as an contextual therapy and provides the reader with a detailed manual how to apply experiential techniques even with “hard cases” focussing on and working with the therapy relationship. Thus it builds a bridge between behaviour therapy and psychodynamic in-session work. To give you a more vivid impression we uploaded some role-play Videos recorded in workshop in Helsinki in 2018.

A second focus of my work lies in the field of developing Schema Therapy with Couples (ST-C) further. Besides contributing significantly to two books on this topic (see Couples Therapy-page) we developed a system of 12 modules giving you handrails to guide you through your way through a therapy with couples. The modules add a layer of practical techniques to the bedrock outlined in the books.
