About the Video:
In Schema Change Methods, Drs. Michael A. Tompkins, Jacqueline B. Persons, and Joan Davidson discuss and illustrate ways for changing a client's maladaptive core beliefs in cognitive-behavioral therapy. Schemas are cognitive structures that allow people to make sense of their experiences. Distorted schemas can contribute to depression. This video first defines schema, then presents theoretical rationale and empirical support, a discussion of the positive data log, and a demonstration with a client.
This video features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material.
