SCHEMA THERAPY


Happy Family at SunriseSchema Therapy is a therapy program developed by Jeffrey Young (schematherapy.com). It is based on Cognitive Therapy but it is structured differently, and has additional techniques to make it effective for personality issues. Since personality issues often appear in a relationship or work situation, Schema Therapy is a very powerful tool for those situations.

When we speak of personality issues, we are talking about conditions or behaviors that range from simple attitudes or quirks to serious full-blown personality disorders. Schema Therapy is useful for people who are not experiencing major conditions and simply have some quirks that are causing them problems. It is particularly useful with couples, because relationships often bring out these unusual behaviors. It is one of the few proven effective techniques for serious personality disorders.

Schema Therapy views personality as a set of learned attitudes and behaviors which are called schemas. What is learned can be replaced. There is no need to say "its just the way I am."
