Little STAA: Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy Training
Introducing STAA’s sidekick, Little STAA
Little STAA is an ISST approved training provider offering workshops, supervision, and certification in Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy (ST-CA). Little STAA is home to both local and international faculty members certified in Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy: Erin Bulluss, PhD (Australia); Ida Shaw, MA (USA); and Christof Loose, PhD (Germany). Child-Adolescent Schema Therapy embraces play and creativity in implementing mode work with children and adolescents, while also engaging parents/caregivers in schema- and mode- work to enhance and complement the child’s therapeutic experience. This approach aims to make deeper level change in the child’s internal world, their attachment relationships, and their family systems, rather than focusing on symptom reduction and surface level change. Detailed information about certification requirements for ST-CA can be found on the ISST website: www.schematherapysociety.com .
