Official Course Start: November 2nd (2022)


Course Overview:

From time to time, we all experience "Tough Cases". Narcissistic clients and those with strong overcompensation often present as angry, critical, and counter-attacking. At other times these clients can present as unmotivated, unwilling, and impulsive. Substance abuse and addictions complicate the picture too. This population can also be among the most triggering for therapists to manage. This course will focus on a schema therapy approach to the conceptualisation and schema mode treatment of problems related to narcissism and other 'overcompensating' presentations - so called "Tough Cases".

Therapists own schema activation will also be explored; registrants will learn how to provide empathic, but sturdy and resilient responses to difficult clinical presentations. Learning resources include a combination of video presentations, movie-clips, podcasts, skills role-plays, and reflection tasks. Access to our dedicated forums (including our closed Facebook Group) is included to support your learning and access to our community of learners).


This course, designed for busy professionals, can be done at your own time and at your own pace. It is designed to be completed over the course of 6-weeks, but registrants will be given access to the course for either 16-weeks (Standard Access) or 12-months (Extended Access for those that want longer with the materials). The training constitutes 16-hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and will include a 1-hour Zoom Q&A meet-up with Chris & Rob towards the end of the course. A certificate of completion will be provided on completion. Facilitated by ISST Accredited Supervisor/Trainers Chris Hayes & Rob Brockman
