What is Schema Therapy?

Schema therapy is a further development of cognitive behavioral therapy by Jeffrey Young (New York) in order to be able to work better with the emotional structures that have been imprinted since childhood and unconsciously control behavior. It combines elements from different schools of therapy into a coherent therapy model with a structured approach.
