“This is an outstanding Online Stream for any professional interested in utilizing Schema Therapy with difficult patients. The therapists are extremely skillful at blending the many components of schema therapy such as: limited reparenting, confrontation, limit-setting, emotion-focused techniques like imagery, and cognitive work. I plan to use segments from these videos in teaching advanced trainees in our certification program, as well as in workshops I teach in other countries.”

Jeffrey E. Young, PhD, Founder and Director of the Cognitive Therapy Centers of New York and Connecticut, and the Schema Therapy Institute in New York City.
