Dr Rob Brockman (Clinical Psychologist)

Co-Director of Schema Therapy Training Online; co-author of "Contextual Schema Therapy" (Roediger, Stevens, & Brockman 2020)

I am an active researcher and clinician. Since 2014, I have had the pleasure of sharing this model with my colleagues through face-to-face workshops and supervision. However, I understand that attending a live workshop may not always be practical or accessible so I have teamed up with Chris Hayes to design a comprehensive online schema therapy course.
