AMPLIFICATION THROUGH SIMPLIFICATION

The foundation of the iModes
Cartoons work on the principle of “amplification through simplification”. By taking an image and simplifying it, an artist can amplify its meaning.

Makes a visual impact
Cartoon-images speak to us in ways that go beyond “mere words”. This is the idea behind the Bernstein iModes: tools that produce a powerful, immediate experience of recognition.

EMOTION EVOKING

Creates an emotional experience
The iModes increase the personal involvement of the viewer. We want people to “feel” their emotional states, not just understand them intellectually.

Tells a visual story
“The iModes tools create an emotional bridge. They let patients tell their stories, connecting them with themselves, and us, with them.”

– Dr. David Bernstein

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

“There is often an immediate and deeper impact compared to just talking about modes more abstractly. This opens up the way to a deeper empathic understanding of and connection to the child to more meaningful reparenting.”

David Edwards, President of ISST (South-Africa)

“The iModes and Emotional Needs tools makes it easier and more natural for them to talk about their “inner child” and the emotional needs that they missed during childhood.”

Aldo Lombardo, Psychiatrist (Italy)

“The Healthy Adult tool brings a breath of fresh air into the therapy room. They add playfulness and creativity in the schema therapy work I do. I found them to be very beneficial in working with therapy groups.”

Erlend Aschehoug, Schema Therapist (Norway)

“The iModes are emotive to a degree that feels sincere and relatable for forensic client groups. I have noticed that some of the more vulnerable cards (e.g., Abandoned Child Mode) will sometimes trigger an emotional expression more easily than if we were simply conversing about events.”

Lucie Swaffield, Forensic Psychologist (Australia)

“One of the biggest features of the iModes are that they are so recognizable that they don’t require a lot of explanation to understand and interpret them. These tools are also very useful for training and coaching treatment teams and health care professionals.”

Irene Bos, Schema Therapist (Netherlands)

“Using the iModes tools has really facilitated my work with patients in various ways: explaining schema concepts, analyzing clinical cases and doing chair work. I use the iModes with patients, families, couples and therapists in training.”

Sandra Bon, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (Switzerland)

“My clients find the iModes enjoyable and easy to work with. The cards help them to view their modes from a safe distance and understand the reoccurring patterns in their lives.”

Minou van den Ouweland, Schema Therapist (Netherlands)

“I have been using the iModes for over a year now and I truly think that they are ingenious; every phase of therapy has benefitted from using the iModes. The cards simplify complex emotional states and make them more understandable for patients.”

Harold Dadomo, Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (Italy)

“I think that the iModes guide is fantastic, this book was really enlightening and inspiring. It gave me a lot of creative ideas on how to use the tools.”

Christof Loose, Schema Therapist (Germany)
