As a therapist, you recognise the significance of helping individuals identify and utilise their inherent strengths to overcome challenges. This is precisely what Resource Therapy offers.

We provide training in Parts Therapy with interactive tools to help you work with clients effectively. Additionally, we provide certifications for practitioners of Parts Therapy who desire to gain professional acknowledgement for their contributions to the industry.

Understanding Resource Therapy and Its Benefits to You

A brief psychodynamic psychotherapy, Resource Therapy focuses on assisting clients in using their internal personality parts known as our ‘Resources’ to overcome emotional obstacles, and internal conflict, and healing from prior trauma.

RESOURCE THERAPY ADDRESSES CAUSES OF OUR ISSUES, which naturally means symptoms either lessen or disappear. It also creates a new relationship with the past, so there may no longer be the same confusion or distress-related experiences.

Resource Therapy allows therapists to respond directly to the precise personality part that holds the problem.

This targeted approach saves precious time and money.

Many therapies speak with an intellectual, talkative, reporting Part that is not directly related to the presenting issue. RT gently guides you on how to speak with the part aka Resource that most needs assistance.


Resource therapy is a trauma-aware, attachment-informed, strength-based brief psycho-dynamic Parts therapy. Professor Gordon Emmerson PhD. has developed this model after many years of using Ego State Therapy. He has pioneered newer techniques and a unique model of Parts, States, or ‘Resources’.

The Resource Therapy Institute of Australia provides training and support for psychologists using this approach in their practice. Philipa Thornton is proud to be President of Resource Therapy International, appointed by Gordon Emmerson, Ph.D.
