Core beliefs formed in childhood (schemas) often impede a client’s progress in therapy and play a role in maintaining chronic problems. Schema therapy is designed to bring about change for these beliefs mostly formed in childhood.   Schema therapy is widely used with clients with personality disorders, as well as  Axis I clients.  Participants learn to plan treatment for schema change, practice schema techniques, treat noncompliance/resistance.
