This workshop will help attendees gain a thorough understanding of the Schema Therapy model and provide an extensive platform for learning new skills and techniques used in Schema Therapy.  The workshop will address both the schema and mode models. The training is skills based, with multiple opportunities to learn complex techniques for working with difficult-to-treat clinical populations. The training will centre around Cluster B and C personality disorders, with a particular focus on Borderline Personality Disorder and its treatment

If you have attended 1 or 2 day workshops in the past, this workshop will build on what you have learned, providing a good platform for learning and practicing skills, as well as direct coaching of skills, in order to build therapist confidence in schema mode work. We aim to have 1 presenter for every 12-16 attendees, allowing participants to have optimum coaching, observation and adequate supervision of skills- places are limited. For bookings, please visit www.schematherapytrainingscotland.com
