Do you have clients who are stuck - struggling with personality disorders and other chronic psychological challenges despite months or even years in treatment?

The lack of progress is extremely frustrating to both you and your clients!

Schema Therapy is a highly effective, evidence-based therapeutic approach that will expand your treatment toolbox and finally move even your most challenging and resistant clients forward.

As an expansion of traditional cognitive behavioral therapy, schema therapy integrates attachment theory, psychodynamic concepts, and emotion-focused therapies to help clients transform their negative thoughts and reactions into new, positive behaviors.

Join Wendy Behary, MSW, LCSW, founder and director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The New Jersey Institute for Schema Therapy, for a new intensive online course on the active, systematic, flexible, and depth-oriented schema approach.

You’ll fully understand how to implement schema therapy into your practice! Through expert guidance and in-depth instruction, plus demonstrations of master schema therapists, you'll learn assessment and change strategies that will revolutionize your outcomes.

Schema therapy is particularly well suited for difficult, resistant clients with entrenched, chronic psychological challenges, including personality disorders (such as BPD and Narcissism), eating disorders, intractable relationship problems, and criminal offenders. It is also effective for relapse prevention in depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.

In this in-depth online course, Wendy Behary will guide you step-by-step through the schema approach to fully prepare you for implementation in your practice.

Here's a summary of the clinical training:

Schema Theory
  — How to assess and conceptualize some of the most challenging cases in Schema terms.
  — Schema Modes and activating conditions, individually and in their primary relationships.
  — Treatment formulation based on the linkage of current problems with a client's innate makeup, early unmet needs, schemas, and coping styles.


You'll learn to implement Schema Inventories for patient assessment:
The YSQ (Young Schema Questionnaire)
The YPI (Young Parenting Inventory)
The SMI (Schema Mode Inventory)


Through advanced demonstrations and case conceptualizations, you’ll learn to apply a variety of emotion-focused, cognitive, and behavioral strategies to break self-defeating patterns including:
  — Imagery
  — Mode Dialogues
  — Empathic Confrontation
  — Bypassing Avoidance
  — Setting Limits
  — Adaptive (limited) Re-Parenting Stance
  — Behavioral Pattern-Breaking


You'll practice specific schema mode profiles, including the anger modes, and learn to effectively bypass “detached protector” modes to access necessary emotions for healing and change.

Therapist schema activation and self-regulation strategies for maintaining a sturdy, genuine, and healthy adult mode and model are also incorporated into this intensive training!
