Training programme


Schema Therapy NI is a Northern Ireland based provider of ISST approved certification training in schema therapy. Workshop numbers are limited in order to maximise opportunities for supervised practice of clinical skills. All workshops are highly interactive and involve a combination of teaching, group discussions and exercises, videos, and skills practice using role plays. Training is provided across two modules, which may also be booked on a stand-alone basis. Experienced ISST certified schema therapy supervisors are attached to the training programme, and contact with supervisors can be arranged by the training director.
