Abstract:Literature shows that psychological treatments such as Schema Therapy (ST) achieve promising results for people with personality disorders (PDs). Considering the fact that research on ST for this treatment population is still scarce the current study aimed to investigate its effectiveness in a clinical group setting. More specifically, it was studied whether short- and long-term changes regarding early maladaptive schemas (EMSs) and psychological distress co-occur in clients with PDs over the course of ST. If this study finds remarkable results regarding certain schemas, interventions which aim to correct EMSs can be adjusted. This in turn might contribute to symptomatic relief as well.
