Designed to meet the formidable challenges of treating personality disorders and other complex difficulties, schema therapy combines proven cognitive-behavioral techniques with elements of other widely practiced therapies. This book--written by the model's developer and two of its leading practitioners--is the first major text for clinicians wishing to learn and use this popular approach. Described are innovative ways to rapidly conceptualize challenging cases, explore the client's childhood history, identify and modify self-defeating patterns, use imagery and other experiential techniques in treatment, and maximize the power of the therapeutic relationship. Including detailed protocols for treating borderline personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder, the book is illustrated with numerous clinical examples.

Industry Reviews

'Useful verbatim examples are given for treatment of several types of patients... A very good book, and I highly recommend it to both novice and veteran therapists.' - "Psychiatric Times" 'A rich and highly informative text that outlines the principles of the schema model, schema assessment and evaluation, and all the major components of schema therapy... The richness of the clinical material is enough to give practitioners a basic understanding of how to apply schema therapy... An insightful, innovative, and thorough treatment approach to personality pathology.' -" Journal of Psychosomatic Research" 'This is a superb volume, reflecting many years of astute clinical and theoretical work by very able clinicians... It should appeal to psychotherapy integrationists from many traditions.' - "Psychotherapy Research" 'This volume demonstrates in a skillful, highly readable fashion how the standard cognitive therapy approaches to Axis 1 disorders can be expanded and modified to treat personality disorders... Highly recommended for all therapists engaged in treating patients with these very difficult personality problems.' - "Aaron T. Beck, MD"

THis is a very useful reference text on schema therapy for psychologists. The book is well written the charts are especially helpful. One small problems is with the section on modes. The authors need to take more care when they use terms in this section, often defining a term, but then using it in different more casual ways in explanation this was confusing especially if reading the first time. A good addition would be a chart that includes all terms including overview or umbrella terms organised from overview down to detail this could appear as a fold out at the end of the text. The existing charts do not do this but rather focus on detailed terms.
