We provide professional support in Schema Therapy.
Schema Therapy is a psychotherapy method developed
as a theoretical and practical model for the recognition and treatment of
psychological disorders with distinct origins in childhood and adolescence.
Schemas are patterns of thought, emotion, and
behavior that start in childhood and repeat throughout life. Since schemas are
formed by childhood lives and progress by developing throughout life, they have
mold structures that ossify. These stereotypes reflect the thoughts and
feelings of the person in understanding every information coming from the
environment and in the experiences gained; It affects the relationship
with those around him. Therefore, the resulting behavior varies depending
on the developed scheme. Understanding and realizing where and how these
structures are shaped is one of the most important steps to catch up with change.
Developed by Young et al., The Schema Model focuses
on creating a change in schema patterns by combining Cognitive-Behavioral
Therapy techniques. According to the schema model, schemas that begin to
develop from childhood life turn into dysfunctional thought and behavior
patterns over time. It has been observed that these schemes, which help to
cope with childhood events and situations, disrupt the function of the person
in adulthood and may be associated with some chronic conditions. At this
point, Schema Therapy is a psychotherapy method developed as a theoretical and
practical model for the recognition and treatment of psychological disorders
with distinct origins in childhood and adolescence.
Jeffrey Young defined 18 different schemas in the Schema
Therapy model and divided these schemas under 5 schema areas.
Abandonment / Instability,
Insecurity / Abuse,
Imperfection / Embarrassment,
Social Isolation / Alienation,
Addiction / Insufficiency,
Durability Against Diseases and Threats,
Intertwining / Undeveloped Self,
Merit / Size,
They are divided as punishments.
