Emotional Schemas and Cognitive Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the fact that negative cognitions have their roots in past experiences. Schema-Focused Cognitive Therapy proposes an integrative systematic model of treatment for a wide spectrum of chronic pain, difficult and characterological problems. This approach was developed to address lifelong, self-defeating patterns called early maladaptive schemas.

Almost everyone has experienced sadness, anxiety, anger, regret, jealousy, envy, and resentment. It is hard to imagine living a complete life without having feelings that are difficult or troubling. Just as we all may have bizarre, weird, or unwanted thoughts—but fail to become obsessive-compulsive—so also we may have a full range of emotions with-out having an “emotional” or“psychiatric” disorder. Emotional schema therapy(EST) proposes that emotional disorders are often the result of the interpretations and evaluations of One’s emotions and the strategies employed to cope with those emotions.
