(Persons et al., 2001; Weiten, 1989; Young, 1999)
The last part of this session will be spent talking about schemas.
“Schema” is just the fancy name given to the set of ideas you have developed about different events, objects, social situations and people. They are your core beliefs, your values and those beliefs that you hold very close.
Schemas (or core beliefs) are central to your sense of self, and play a role in the image you have developed of yourself.
They are our underlying beliefs, which we use to make sense of the world around us.
