Attend the ISST Summer School 2015, and Take in the Beautiful St. Petersburg White Nights Festival

Do you want to enhance your skills and expertise as a schema therapist, during one of the best times of the year to visit St. Petersburg? ISST invites you to join us for the 2015 Summer School in St. Petersburg during the White Nights Summer Festival. We will be hosting top experts in the field of schema therapy to present at workshops designed to help you broaden and expand your work with select populations and areas.

Since this is one of the busiest travel times to St. Petersburg, we suggest that you make your travel reservations as soon as you can. ISST Summer School 2015 will take place from June 11th through the 13th. The venue will be the Holiday Inn, St. Petersburg Moskovskye Vorota This 4 star hotel and conference center is located just minutes from Moskovskiye Vorota Metro Station and is four metro stops from the city center of Saint Petersburg. It has large, modern, air-conditioned rooms. The hotel has two bars, three restaurants, and a night club. Rodchenko Restaurant serves rich breakfast buffet and a variety of Europe cuisine for lunch and dinner. Guests can make use of the tour desk and ticket service. The friendly, English-speaking staff provides 24 hour assistance. 

The Moskovskii Prospekt is a short walk away, and the airport is only a 20-minute drive away. Special rates at the Holiday Inn are being negotiated for conference attendees, along with the adjoining Staybridge Suites. That is where Ida and I have stayed on our last three visits and can report that it is a very comfortable and reasonably priced option. Paul is investigating other less expensive options and there are many 5 star hotels in the area for those who want more luxury. Click for links to the websites of the Holiday Inn and the Staybridge Suites. The Staybridge offers guests a champagne, vodka and zakuski reception on three nights every week.

The Conference Program offers a choice of three day-long workshops each day followed by early evening Round Table discussions led by experts. The daily workshop choices include the specialty areas of Schema Therapy: individualgroup, couples, or child-adolescent given by international experts. These workshops provide specific ISST certification credits and we expect them to be university certified to meet international continuing education requirements. The Round Table discussions focus on: ST Specialty areas (Child-Adolescent, Group, Couples) ISST Certification, ST Research and ST theory. These are opportunities to share your ideas with international colleagues.

Registration begins shortly and workshop space is limited. View more details on the ISST webpage: ISST Summer School
