What is a Schema-Focused Therapy Worksheet?

Schema therapy is a modern style of therapy that incorporates components of CBT, psychoanalysis, attachment theory, and emotion-focused therapy, among others. Clients engage with a therapist to identify and understand their schemas, also known as early maladaptive schemas, in this therapy. Schema is a mental model or notion that aids in the organization and interpretation of data. Over time, a person develops a specific schema for any occurrence. For example, if you were in an accident at a certain location, every time you pass by that location, it will trigger unpleasant emotions such as dread, anxiety, and so on. This worksheet will help you recognize your schemas for various events and will also assist you in changing unfavorable schema patterns.
