Abstract:Objective: Research investigating treatment of chronic axis I or II disorders shows that ambulant treatment doesn’t benefit a part of this group. For this group, schema therapy by Jeffrey Young seems to be a promising treatment. However, knowledge about this form of treatment in a clinical group setting is scarse. The importance of this study lies in the fact that the investigation of possible correlations between disfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms in a clinical population can lead to possible keystones for treatment protocols. Moreover, this study builds on results that have been found earlier, namely that dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms show a significant relieve by the end of treatment with schema therapy. The present study investigated if these effects also remain at six month follow-up. Purpose: The correlations between dysfunctional schemas and symptoms at the beginning of therapy are investigated. Next, finding out in what extent there’s a significant change in dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms at the end of schema therapy in a clinical group setting and at six month follow-up. Finally, an examination took place if the found relief at the end of treatment remains at six month follow-up. Method: In a clinical group setting young adults with chronic axis I or II disorders are treated with schema therapy. To asses dysfunctional schemas the Young Schema Questionnaire (n=22) is used. To assess psychological symptoms the Brief Symptom Inventory (n=16) is used. Only cliënts who ended treatment and filled out the questionairres before and after treatmemt and after six month follow up are analysed. Correlation coëfficiënts and one-way repeated measures ANOVA are used to analyse the collected data. Results: This study found correlations between some dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms at the beginning of treatment. Futhermore, both dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms show a significant decrease between the beginning and end of treatment and after six month follow-up and lastly the decrease at the end of treatment seems to remain at follow-up. Discussion: A few indications for correlations between certain dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms at the beginning of treatment are found. Furthermore, it seems schema therapy in a clinical group setting contributes to a significant relieve in dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms at the end of treatment and after six month follow-up and lastly the significant change in dysfunctional schemas and psychological symptoms that have been found seems to remain at six month follow- up. The positive results give impulse for further investigation with control groups and perhaps keystones for adjustments of treatment protocols.
