Karolina Vörös (Belgrade, Serbia)
My name is Karolina and I have a master’s degree in psychology (Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad). I obtained the title of psychodrama psychotherapist (Regional association for psychodrama and integrative use of psychotehrapy RAIP), as well as the National Certificate in Psychotherapy in 2017. Constant interest in the field of psychotherapy and various modalities further led me to complete an advanced level of education in Psychodramatic Bodywork© (Susan Aaron), as well as team training in DBT (Comprehensive Training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Behavioral Tech). I engaged in schema therapy training in 2019, which I completed and got certified as an advanced level individual schema therapist, and later as well as a supervisor. I am also a certified standard level group schema therapist in 2022.
I first encountered schema theory during my studies and devoted my master’s thesis to the research of the topic “Early maladaptive cognitive schemas and affective attachment in the clinical forensic population”, and then my final thesis as part of psychodrama education with the intention of integrating two important psychotherapeutic modality: “Schema theory as a theoretical framework in psychodrama”.
I have been working since 2008, both in the state sector in Subotica (penological system; educational system), and in private psychotherapy practice (Novi Sad, Subotica) individually and in groups (psychodrama psychotherapy groups with different target groups – People who live with HIV, adolescents, psychodrama trainees of RAIP). Since 2019, I have been working exclusively in private practice in Belgrade, in individual and group psychotherapy settings, and hold educational and experiential body psychodrama workshops. In my business ventures, I like co-therapy/team work the most, where I develop close relationships and participate in creating a sense of connection and support with colleagues. Through the role of supervisor, I want to share my knowledge of theory and practice according to experiential techniques and encourage a co-creative process in working with clients.
I practice vulnerability through the publication of papers and presentations at conferences with a devotion to the following topics: attachment, coping styles, emotional (dys)regulation, emotionally unstable-borderline personality disorder, group psychotherapy, developmental and transgenerational traumas.
I work in Serbian and Hungarian, in person and online.
