I am currently the ISST Coordinator for Training & Certification 2012-2016. Members may contact me for questions regarding training or ISST certification, including ISST approved ST certification training programs and Schema Therapy treatment programs.
I am a licensed Ph.D. clinical psychologist. I am the co-developer of GST (Group ST) and available for Skype supervision and training. I co-direct the Schema Therapy Midwest - Indianapolis ISST training program in Individual & Group ST. I am an Adjunct Professor of Clinical Psychology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Research Director of the Center for Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment & Research at Indiana University School of Medicine - Eskenazi Health. I am active in research to evaluate the effectiveness of group ST and have been principal investigator and co-PI on international trials of group ST. After 25 years as faculty I now am in private consulting, training and supervision of Schema Therapy. Together with Ida Shaw I give training internationally (13 countries so far).
I co-developed Group Schema Therapy with Ida Shaw and have written two books on ST published by Wiley-Blackwell: Group Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder, 2012 and The Schema Therapy Clinician's Guide, 2014. A DVD of our group ST model is also available: Group Schema Therapy: an Innovative Approach to treating patients with personality disorder in groups, IVAH 2012. I have several published journal articles and chapters in many ST edited volumes.
