Schema Therapy and DBT – Can they be friends?

August 29th, 2021

Introducing Schema Therapy

Schema Therapy was founded in the mid-1980s, by Dr. Jeffrey Young. Often discussed as an advancement on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, this modality is both proven and becoming increasingly popular.

Founded in the United States, this model of therapy is growing worldwide with a particularly large cohort of psychologists across Europe and Australia becoming certified by the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST).
