What is the study about?
There is growing evidence that schema therapy is effective at bringing about meaningful and lasting change to a person’s psychological wellbeing. We want to understand more about how change occurs.
What does it involve?
You will be interviewed about your experience of schema therapy. This might involve explaining what you found helpful or unhelpful, and what changes, if any, you experienced during the therapy. Also, you will be asked to complete a demographic form and two short wellbeing questionnaires.
It will involve a single 90-minute appointment. The appointment could be held in your therapist’s office, or over Skype.
Can I take part?
We are looking for people who:
- Are 18 years old or older
- Have had at least 6 months of individual schema therapy
- Are still receiving schema therapy, or finished their treatment within the last 6 months
- Did not have group schema therapy or schema therapy for autism spectrum disorder
You will receive a small payment as compensation for your time and any travel expenses.
We are hoping to recruit 15 people who have had schema therapy, by the 31st May 2020. Ideally, we would like our sample to be diverse (i.e. have a range of ages, ethnicities and genders) and include people at different stages in their journey with schema therapy.
