I have already attended some training in schema therapy. Can this be taken into account as having fulfilled part of the requirements toward certification on your program?

We are able to build upon training that you have received elsewhere, but unfortunately are not able to incorporate these into our own certification program. The series of workshops (combined with the accompanying supervision and session ratings) on our certification program have been structured to fulfill the criteria as laid down by the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST). Our programs have to be submitted to the ISST for scrutiny before being certified.

As a participant in any of the Schema Therapy Scotland Certification Programs you can be assured that you will receive the required training, supervision, and ratings of recordings of your sessions (another ISST requirement) that will lead to certification, provided you reach the required standard. All minimum requirements for certification will be provided.

An alternative route to certification would be to independently meet the training, supervision, and skill requirements outlined by the ISST and present your case to the ISST independently. In this case, you would be responsible for presenting your own training and supervision experience to the ISST for ratification. Schema Therapy Scotland can provide supervision and other requirements needed to contribute to your individual application. To ascertain the basic training requirements please see the International Society of Schema Therapy Website www.schematherapysociety.org
