  • In-depth schema focused interventions that are useful for addressing more persistent clinical and behavioural problems such as self-sabotaging and/or risk taking behaviours, chronic depression and anxiety, suicidality, substance misuse.
  • cognitive conceptualizations for multiple difficult to address symptom sets.
  • the role of maladaptive schemas in information processing and communication breakdowns.
