Why learn Schema Therapy?

Research, form therapy has been given great interest since the beginning of the 2000 century. Both the basic theoretical concepts and the effects of clinical treatment have been studied. Research shows that Schema Therapy is very suitable for the treatment of personality disorders in general1, and emotionally unstable personality disorder in particular2.

Formed therapy is furthermore an evidence-based therapy approach to complicated psychiatric conditions such as addiction to addiction3, eating disorder4, anxiety disorders and depression5. In addition, research on the effect of group therapy has been researched6 and on the validity of measuring instruments7.
