Schema therapy was developed by Dr Jeffrey Young after he identified that traditional CBT was inadequate for individuals with more complex needs and conditions. He developed 18 schemas which help us to understand the core psychological wounds that can occur in response to events in childhood. By understanding these schemas and ‘unmet needs’, Dr Young felt that individuals would be able to identify these schemas and then develop strategies to heal them. Schema therapy has grown and developed since its original conception and is a more fluid therapy which requires the client to be willing to take a journey with the therapist and to communicate with the childhood versions or themselves that need nurturance and support.
