Schema Therapy Academy of Australia (STAA) was founded by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals united by a passion for Schema Therapy. Schema Therapy is an integrative therapeutic approach that expands the traditional cognitive behavioural therapy model to include elements of attachment theory, psychodynamic concepts, and emotion-focused therapies in one comprehensive treatment model. Driven by collaborative case conceptualisation adhering to the Schema Therapy model, this approach allows flexible, client centred application of a range of therapeutic techniques, with emphasis on self-defeating life patterns, longstanding emotional themes, effective change techniques, and limited/adaptive reparenting within the therapeutic relationship. Our vision is to support therapists in developing a solid foundation of knowledge and practice in Schema Therapy, then to extend this foundation with extended training modules that draw upon the particular experience of each of our training team.
