  • Abstract: ABSTRACT:

    The role of client's belief systems in therapy is the central concept in cognitive therapy. In our therapeutic work with clients, we focus on their cognitive schemas surrounding a particular problem. These schemas, however, are embedded in a hierarchy of much larger schemas which strongly influence the content of the particular sub-schemas being investigated. The purpose of this article is to introduce the concept of "meta-schema, " from a theoretical perspective, and then offer clinical case examples to illustrate this concept.
