Attachment theory is regarded as a foundational theoretical framework that underpins various aspects of the Schema Therapy Model. These aspects include (but are not limited to): core emotional needs, the role of early life experiences with caregivers in shaping schemas, and coping responses. In this discussion, we draw on models of attachment system dynamics, measures for assessing attachment, and research in the field of adult attachment and early maladaptive schemas to discuss how attachment patterns are likely to align with various schema domains. We also draw on the findings from our recent quantitative review and case studies to further illustrate the likely associations between attachment patterns and schemas. The session will provide insights regarding case conceptualisation and assessment, especially when working with clients who experience chronic relationship issues.
