Schema Therapy and The Work

Schema Therapy is a new form of therapy that supposedly is good for handling personality disorders and chronic depression. It is described as integrating elements of cognitive therapy, behavior therapy, object relations, and gestalt therapy into one unified, systematic approach to treatment. The website includes free slideshows describing the treatment form.

On the subject of new therapy forms, I've recently been experimenting with using The Work of Byron Katie with a few people with problematic family relationships. I've seen improvements in all the cases, including one where the father had asked two days after "What's happened to you? You're all different towards me."

I'm very excited about The Work; I don't really know much I can say about it beyond Try It! The book Loving What Is says more than enough to get you started. And, of course, feel free to post questions, and I'll answer as well as I can.
