Cognitive schemas and core beliefs in psychological problems; a scientist-practitioner guide.


Cognitive schemas and core beliefs in psychological problems; a scientist-practitioner guide.

Ed. by Lawrence P. Riso et al.

American Psychological Assn.


240 pages




Reflecting a revival of a trend in cognitive behavioral psychology, schema-focused approaches for treating psychological problems regard maladaptive cognitive schemas as underlying automatic thoughts and conditioned responses. Riso (American School of Professional Psychology, Argosy U./ Washington, DC) introduces nine chapters by international contributors applying the schema- based model to specific disorders and couples' therapy. Chapters include case examples and case formulation sheets. Despite growing enthusiasm for the schema concept and its strengths at the theoretical and clinical levels, the lead editor concludes that there are outstanding issues: e.g. a need to differentiate between this construct and that of core beliefs, and to develop a unified "schema school."
