 Continuing Professional Development- 21 hours of active CPD

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 center around Borderline Personality Disorder and it's treatment.

If you have attended 1 or 2 day workshops in the past, this workshop will still provide you with a good platform for learning and practicing skills, as well as direct coaching of skills therapists often feel less confident in applying.

We aim to have 1 presenter for every 15-18 attendees, allowing participants to have optimum coaching, observation and adequate supervision of skills- places are limited.
