Register now for the schema therapy event of the year in Vienna!

We're proud to host the Schema Therapy World Conference in Vienna. Take advantage of the Early-Bird Pass to save €40-€50 before April 15th.

We never want to stop learning, and one of the best ways to grow is through the collaboration with other colleagues. Nowhere this year is there a better opportunity for schema therapists to gather for inspiration than Vienna for the ISST INSPIRE 2016 World Conference.

Whatever you're into, we've got a selection for you: We now have the entire program of the Vienna Conference online, with details about each selection, along with bios of presenters, at: INSPIRE 2016. You will see workshops, symposiums, hot topics, case presentations, and panel discussions focusing on how to apply schema therapy to a vast number of populations, with an emphasis on mode work. You will also see summaries of the keynote speakers and pre-conference workshops by some of the key leaders in the field, both from within and outside of schema therapy.

Are We Prisoners of Our Personality? Keynote address by Will Fleeson

Can we change who we are, or are we prisoners of our personality? Are personality traits permanent and unwavering? How do schemas relate to traits? Will Fleeson will discuss Whole Trait Theory, offering a detailed model of traits with optimistic evidence suggesting that our personality is plastic, to a greater extent than previously thought. This plasticity provides us freedom to create the lives we want, but also reveals consequences of symptom variability from moment to moment, on a greater scale than once thought. 

Will Fleeson is a Professor of Psychology at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, USA. His interests include the nature of personality, consistency, self-regulation, development, well-being, borderline personality disorder, and moral character. Will's studies on the distributions of behavior and their implications for personality won SPSP's Theoretical Innovation Prize, and the Carol and Ed Diener Award in Personality Psychology in 2015.

The Hofburg: Walk in the Footsteps of Emperor Franz Josef

Walk through the Imperial Palace to see some of the finest Baroque interiors in Europe. Until 1918, the Hofburg was the home of the Habsburgs. Today, it is a vast sightseeing destination, including the Imperial Apartments, two imperial treasuries, six museums, the National Library, and the famous Winter Riding School. Don't miss the latest Hofburg attraction, a museum devoted to "Sisi," the beloved Empress Elisabeth and beautiful wife of Franz Joseph who was the talk of Europe. See it all with the €23 "Sisi Ticket," including the Kaiserappartements, Silberkammer, Imperial Furniture Depot, Vienna Furniture Museum, and a Grand Tour of the Schönbrunn Palace.
