    1. I checked it out from the SU library and couldn't read and renewed it a couple of times until someone else put a hold on it. I had to rush through it. It is written for the therapist rather than the client. I found the theatrical, comfort your vulnerable child yourself, to some extent funny. As if, what we see as our personality were a byproduct of a game we call life. Which may be true of course. Compared to Reinventing your life (RYL) there were new concepts introduced here. The defectiveness [...]

    2. I hate . social work school. I . do not . want . to be a therapist. I . hate THERAPY!!!That said, if I were going to do therapy, I can think of far worse ways to go about it. Schema therapy actually seems pretty sensible to me, as far as this kind of thing goes. UGH!!!! ARGH! I FEEL LIKE I'M BEING TORTURED!!!No, actually, really, it's great. If you're into this kind of thing, schema therapy's great. CBT but with a pinch of respect for humanity, and to my mind a bit more realistic. Yeah. Whew. [...]

    3. Loved this book. Instead of classifying people into symptoms, Young separates them into the underlying schemas which determine those behaviours. I am a beginning therapist and found this book a joy to read. It is fascinating to realise how unconscious out behavior can be, and how it often relates to our early experiences. Highly recommended for those who want to extend beyond the self help book, he goes through the exercises and provides scripts from actual sessions so you can see what it would [...]

    4. This is an excellent, comprehensive guide to Schema Therapy. The authors go through a range of "early maladaptive schemas" and how to treat them. They also challenge some of the untenable assumptions of the "psychiatrists bible", the DSM.

    5. Carte de capatai pentru terapia bazata pe scheme. Este unul dintre cele mai bine conceptualizate modele integrative pe care le-am intalnit in cautarea de metode de interventie terapeutica up to date.

    6. For the professional therapist of any school of thought, this might help in that it organizes the structure of case formulation, and better thinking the case. It also helps in learning what schema therapy is all about!It is far from being enough, just a reference and an idea. At least a bit of supervision and technique roleplaying are necessary for puting it to practice, and the whole study to actually be a schema therapist and all that comes with it - I think it should be the standard integrati [...]

    7. Un libro bastante completo, con procedimientos detallados para trabajar con trastorno narcisista y límite. Los planes de trabajo propuestos son amplios, si bien no al detalle, un terapeuta experimentado puede utilizarlos intuitivamente como guía.

    8. Incredibly pragmatic in its application to addiction, this manual is written such that it can be understood by those who have only a basic concept of schemas.

    9. Wonderful book about how to deal with the life traps that we have grown up with. Tells about what sets us off and how to control them.
