​Work with fellow Schema Therapists from around the world as you stretch your couple therapy skills

How do you break through the negative patterns of your most difficult couples? Most likely, one or both partners has a “raw spot” that leads him or her to react in rigid, habitual ways that can derail even the most well-intended couples therapy. Until now, no couples therapy has been developed specifically to address more severe couples where one or both partners have what are commonly diagnosed as personality disorders.

If you practice Schema Therapy, you know that it is a complete therapeutic model created to help therapists effectively change ingrained aspects of character commonly associated with personality disorders. Applied to couples, the model targets schemas and modes that lead to distress in in a love relationship.

The same clinically-proven model that has resulted in significant changes in individual and group modalities for several personality disorders, including Borderline Personality Disorder, has now been employed to help schema therapists like you to "team up" with both partners in a relationship to both repair distress, and to heal past relationship injuries.  

You can use the Schema Therapy skills and knowledge you have gained through the individual, group, or children & adolescents specialities and systemically apply them to relationships using the Schema Couples Therapy model. Practitioners of Schema Couples Therapy know that working with partners in a love relationship effectively requires much more than using Schema Therapy with two individuals in a session.

We will help you break down the complexity of Schema Therapy when applied to couples dynamics to apply the model in a way that can be simple to use, and unpack what may feel chaotic to help your couples reignite their passion and marital satisfaction.


Schema Therapy provides significant advances in couples therapy
  • Empirically validated and reliable assessment instruments to pinpoint themes behind each partner’s sensitivities—you will be able to rapidly access specific problem areas
  • Conceptualization tools to help you develop treatment plans with specific strategies and techniques that target problem areas
  • Multiple change strategies during treatment to address even the most difficult couples. Use tools to track the progress of your couple, and quantify progress as it happens
