Abstract

Maladaptive cognitive schemas are emotional and cognitive patterns that are detrimental to the individual and have their roots in early childhood and are developed and replicated in later life. According to Young, the creator of the schema theory, the presence of distorted beliefs and specific cognitive schemas can be the basis for personality and chronic mental disorders. The aim of this paper is to present conclusions from the analysis of the literature on the relationship between maladaptive cognitive schemas and selected mental disorders, i.e. depressive disorders, bipolar affective disorders, addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and social phobia.
