Dear ISST Members-

I will be on vacation for the month of August and will not be reviewing certification applications or returning Training & Certifcation emails during that time. I have caught up with all the applications and questions sent to me up to today. There may be some delay in certificates being issued this month as our hardworking Office Manager is trying to catch up from a huge workload after the conference along with the much greater number of certifications being processed. You may not realize that my job, as the rest of the Executive Board,  is volunteer and our office staff up to now has been part time. The gratifying increase in ISST membership, training programs and certified schema therapists as well as an increased number of specialty certifications requires that we make some changes, You will receive notice soon about an online GMA vote on splitting T & C Coordinator into two positions. I hope that you will vote in favor of this as the tasks are too much for one volunteer. I will not be running again for the position, but know that there are very able members who are willing to be nominated in the upcoming election. I also have a heavy travel for training schedule the rest of the year, so will not be able to devote the day or more a week thst I usually give to ISST. Hopefully the new Executive Board members in this area will get the process moving again.

Warm regards,


Why Schema Therapy?

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.
