Starts May 25th (2021): This 6-week interactive online course (with 16-weeks access) introduces therapists to the Schema Mode Model, and 'Mode' interventions (the model typically used for complex presentations). The training is skills-based, with multiple opportunities to learn techniques for working with difficult-to-treat clinical presentations (particularity Borderline Personality Disorder, Cluster-C Personality Disorders, Complex Trauma, & Chronic Depression). Chris & Rob make use of a mix of professionally recorded webinar-style presentations, skills demonstrations, and thought provoking reflection tasks designed to increase your knowledge and application of the schema mode model to complex cases. You will get the chance to further your schema therapy practice; learning how to work 'experientially' (e.g. using chair dialogues and Imagery Rescripting) with challenging/ treatment resistant 'parts' or 'modes'. There are also x 2 live Zoom Q&A consultation meetings scheduled during the 6-week program (Taped and streamed later for those that can't make it live). Access to discussion forums (and dedicated closed Facebook group) are included to help support your learning and to connect you to our online learning community.
The training constitutes 18-hours of active professional development and you will be provided a certificate on completion.


This Course officially starts May 25th (2021) and is designed around 6 'weekly' modules. However, the course is completely self-paced. Access to the course (and downloadable materials/scripts) will be given for 16-weeks total in case 'life happens' and you need some additional time to complete the modules. Note: all course materials are available immediately on purchase giving you additional time with the course resources! All interactive elements of the course start May 25th.

Rob Brockman, PhD (Clinical Psychologist) ISST Accredited Supervisor and Trainer


Co-Director of Schema Therapy Training Online; co-author of "Contextual Schema Therapy" (Roediger, Stevens, & Brockman 2020)

I am an active researcher and clinician. Since 2014, I have had the pleasure of sharing this model with my colleagues through face-to-face workshops and supervision. However, I understand that attending a live workshop may not always be practical or accessible so I have teamed up with Chris Hayes to design a comprehensive online schema therapy course.
