Flashcard Content Overview

Schemas are just the way people process and respond to information and stimuli in their everyday lives.

This set goes into more detail about how schema therapy is used to help patients cope with stressors and stimuli in their lives.

When there are unmet needs in childhood, this can lead to issues in how a person learns to cope with stress and any kind of outside stimuli.

People who are diagnosed with mental illness or a personality disorder often have not ever been taught the proper schemas to cope with regular day-to-day interactions and activities.

Examples of ineffective schemas could be seen in a person who always yells when angry or a person who cries in response to any emotional distress. Schema Therapy begins with patients returning to the origins of their issues through visualization techniques. One such technique is called chairwork. In this method of Schema Therapy, the patient faces an empty chair and addresses a significant person in their life or takes on the role of that person and speaks for them.

Schema Therapy can last up to two years before other cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques are used, but there is no set time limit for this method of therapy.
