The Schema Therapy model proposes that early maladaptive schemas develop through an interaction between temperament and adverse childhood experiences where specific, core emotional needs are not met.

These self-defeating patterns of interaction are played out throughout one’s lifetime causing them a great deal of trouble, heartache and grief.
