Schema therapy is an integrated therapy comprising cognitive, Gestalt, attachment-based, object relations and behavioural components. The therapy was originally developed by Jeffrey Young for adults with personality difficulties related to childhood trauma who did not respond to CBT. At the heart of the treatment is the client’s unmet emotional needs from childhood and the maladaptive cognitive and emotional schemas or mental constructs related to these unmet needs. Through interview and completion of schema questionnaires, the therapist works with the client to collaboratively identify unmet childhood emotional needs and schemas to create a shared formulation. In a structured and systematic therapy of between 6 and 24 months, the therapist works to allow the client experience in the therapy relationship and in experiential exercises those needs being met, and to reflect on such experiences to allow schemas to change. Homework is set around generalizing this experience beyond the therapy relationship. Schema therapy has been shown to be highly effective in treating individuals with complex issues including Borderline Personality Disorder (Gieson-Boo et al, 2006) and with other personality disorders (Bamelis et al, 2014).
