Abstract: 

The past 3 decades have witnessed a significant growth in the status of cognitive theory and practice of cognitive therapy in the treatment of depression. Schema therapy, a modified and integrative version of cognitive therapy, postulates that individuals with pervasive childhood experiences of neglect and/or abuse develop early maladaptive schemas(EMSs). EMSs refer to the deepest level of cognitive structures and are defined as self-defeating emotional and cognitive patterns regarding oneself and one’s personal relationships that begin early in our development. The EMSs play a causal role in the development of later psychopathology. The schema theory has not been developed specifically for an understanding of depression and depressive symptoms, but entrenched and chronic psychological disorders.However, the occurrence of an episode of Major Depression (MD) has indeed, been conceptualized as a potential serious and entrenched disorder due to its highly recurrent and for a substantial number of individuals, chronic course. Indeed chronic depression is common, difficult to treat, and a significant public health problem. Conceptualizing patients with chronic depression in terms of generalized maladaptive schemas helps organize a large number of complaints under a common theme. A focus on schemas in the treatment of chronic depression differs from traditional cognitive therapy by placing a greater emphasis on early childhood experiences, making greater use of emotive techniques such as guided imagery, using the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle of change, and conducting a lengthier course of therapy because of the resistance to change of underlying schemas.
