"…Give me the perseverance of the sea’ s waves, which make each retreat a starting point for a new breakthrough"

Gabriela Mistral

The Israeli Institute of Schema Therapy was founded in 2013 by Dr. Eshkol Rafaeli and Dr. Offer Maurer To serve as a home for both training and supervision in schema therapy. Our mission is to increase the availability of well-trained schema therapists, thus making this innovative and integrative treatment more accessible for people in need in Israel and abroad. 


מקימי המכון וחלק מחברי הצוות מציעים הכשרה והדרכה בסכמה תרפיה (כגישת טיפול במבוגרים, מתבגרים וילדים, וכן כגישה בטיפול זוגי, ובטיפול קבוצתי).


The founders of the institute and some of its team members offer training and supervision in schema therapy for adults, adolescents and children, for couples, and for groups.

The institute offers psychotherapy using the schema therapy approach, and serves as a home for studying and further developing the approach. Additionally, the institute offers training towards certification in the schema therapy approach to licensed therapists through several dedicated tracks recognized by the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST).
