This course, designed and instructed by International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST) Accredited supervisor/trainers Chris Hayes and Rob Brockman, covers the basics of schema therapy practice. This course is designed as introductory level schema therapy training, to be completed over 6-weeks. Teaching makes use of a mix of didactic teaching, skills-based demonstrations (e.g. Chairwork & Imagery Rescripting), and thoughtful reflection and (self)reflection activities. The course includes access to downloadable materials including schema monitoring and formulation templates, practice scripts, and lecture handouts.

There will also be x 2 live Zoom Q&A sessions scheduled during the program (conveniently recorded for those who can't attend live). Further opportunities to ask questions and interact are also available via our dedicated discussion forums and (Closed) Facebook Group for those that are interested.
Participants can also pace the learning according to their own needs. While the course is designed to be completed over 6-weeks, access to the course will remain open for 12-weeks total in case 'life-happens' and you fall behind.

The training constitutes 16-hours of active professional development and you will be provided a certificate on completion. For a sneak peek, check out the course outline below..

Robert Brockman Schema Therapy

Dr Robert Brockman, Clinical Psychologist

ISST Accredited Supervisor/Trainer


Since 2014, I have had the pleasure of sharing this model with my colleagues through face-to-face workshops and supervision. However, I understand that attending a live workshop may not always be practical or accessible so I have teamed up with Chris Hayes to design a comprehensive online schema therapy course.
