Name of Training Program: One-year-long schema therapy training program (standard or advanced certification level)
Program Director: Jędrzej Kosewski
Year of ISST Approval: 2015
Program descriptions: The training program is dedicated to therapists and other mental health professionals who want to gather knowledge of theory and practice of ST. After completing the program, those who are interested in the certification will meet all criteria for certification set by ISST. We invite certified CBT therapists or those who have completed a PTTPB-approved course in cognitive-behavioral therapy to participate in the training. We offer mixture of training experiences: three workshops (two days) about schema basic model, mode model applied to cluster C patients and working with BDP and NPD patients, group and individual supervision. In addition to collaboration with polish advanced level schema therapist, trainees will also have an opportunity to learn from experienced supervisor from UK. Participant will have time to discuss problems and experiment with new approach with support of the supervisor, because the training is focused strongly on the process of learning, not only on meeting ISST criteria. We aim to create an atmosphere of safety and mutual support which is a result of working closely in small group for longer period of time.
Schema therapy has been extensively researched to effectively treat a wide variety of typically treatment resistant conditions, including Borderline Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
