ISST Certified Group Schema Therapist Requirements

The ISST now has a separate certification in Group Schema Therapy. The required curriculum, supervision hours and practice were developed over the last two years by a committee appointed by the ISST Executive Board. The requirements for the Group version of Schema Therapy certification are described here. Group certification is separate from individual ST certification.  A prerequisite of beginning group training for those not already certified in individual ST is attendance at 12 hours of training in the ST model, which can be obtained through any of the ISST approved training programs in Individual ST.  Kerry Beckley is the chair of the Group ST Committee. All applications for certification and questions should be directed to her at: Kerry Beckley

Group Schema Therapy is the application of the full model of ST (i.e. cognitive, experiential or emotion-focused and behavioral pattern-breaking interventions). A short paper by Jeff Young and Joan Farrell describing the model of group ST upon which certification is based can be found in the attachments for this page. Advanced level trainer-Supervisors who want to apply to have an approved training program in Group ST must demonstrate that they will cover the curriculum developed by the GST committee (which is basic ST) and that they present a full model of ST as described in this paper. The Group ST Committee is aware that models of schema-focused group exist that are primarily cognitive. Over the two years of the committee's work to establish a Group ST certification we have reached consensus regarding the essential ingredients of GST. These are reflected in the GST adherence and competence scale, the development of which was led by Gerhard Zarbock. When there was a question of whether the model being used was complete GST applicants were asked to submit a tape recording to be rated using the GSTCRS. The committee felt that this gave everyone in the community who had been working with a group model the opportunity to provide ISST approved training for certification. The Chair of the workgroup reviews routine applications for training programs and makes a recommendation to the T&C Coordinator. In the case of disagreement the entire workgroup reviews the application and ultimately when consensus is not reached the decision would go to the Executive Board.

The grandparenting period ended July 1, 2014.  It is possible to appeal for an extension of the grandparenting deadline by exception under special circumstances. If this applies to you please send a letter of explanation to the T&C Coordinator. Grandparenting Applicants must be at the same level of certification in individual ST that they are applying for in Group ST.
