A Hero's Journey

The Forensic Schema Therapy Sessions


Unleash the transformative power of “A Hero’s Journey – The Forensic Schema Therapy Sessions,” an immersive 6-week online training program that delves into applying schema therapy for forensic clients. This program stands out as it provides a comprehensive step-by-step ‘how-to’ guide, ensuring practical implementation of techniques rather than mere theoretical lectures.

Prepare to be captivated by the remarkable filming style, deliberately designed with a stripped-back, austere noir aesthetic, symbolizing the typical institutional environments and contexts encountered in forensic settings.

In addition to the standard schema therapy techniques, we show you how to use schema mode cards specifically designed for forensic issues. You will learn how to complete offence mapping, evaluate ‘risk‘ in the here and now, understand offence-paralleling behaviour, and identify ‘risk relevant‘ treatment targets often insisted upon by institutions and courts. These concepts are crucial for anyone who works with forensic clients and issues.

This innovative training is a 6-week interactive self-paced online that offers a unique approach to forensic schema therapy, providing participants exclusive access to expertly crafted video clips showcasing various techniques and skills in action. What sets this program apart is the detailed analysis accompanying each clip, where the practitioner’s decision-making and reasoning are meticulously explained, offering viewers a comprehensive understanding of the session dynamics. This program will empower you to navigate the complexities of working with forensic clients, enabling you to apply effective strategies confidently.

Whether you’re already immersed in the forensic field or seeking to expand your expertise, this program is an invaluable resource that equips you with the necessary tools to make a lasting impact. Don’t miss out on this exceptional opportunity to elevate your skills in schema therapy and contribute to the healing journey of those in need.
