For a more conversational style that can be used for client homework, check out his companion book, "Reinventing Your Life."
CONS: Although Schema Therapy is presented as a variation of "short-term Cognitive Therapy", a psychodynamically-informed therapist will see many familiar concepts disguised with "cognitive" terminology. It is interesting that early in the book, Dr. Young makes a statement that cognitive therapists reject psychodynamic principles. Interesting, because a number of the "unique" contributions of Schema Therapy are actually re-branded psychodynamic key concepts. To name just one example: individuals learn to separate parts of their schemas so that they exist separate from other schemas. The goal of Schema Therapy is to help them gain access to those automatic emotions (and thoughts) and integrate them with their other schemas. Is this not uncomfortably close to Compartmentalization????
In a nutshell: buy this manual if you are interested in enhancing your psychotherapy toolbox. However, don't expect any groundbreaking theoretical insights.
