Abstract

We describe the functional content of the early maladaptive schemas (EMS) in 3 subjects with different profiles from the point of view of the role of too EMS (Functional dependence and incompetence and models of lack of compassion) in the relationship between stress and burnout and between stress and engagement. The functional contents of the two EMS revels the structural rigidity that characterizes EMS, by definition, self-perpetuating and quite resistant to change. These EMSs proved to be enduring, appearing to serve as standards for the processing of later experience, constituting themselves as structures capable of generating high levels of dysfunctional emotions with self-defeating and exhausting consequences. EMS seem to be able to interfere with the central needs for self-expression, autonomy, interpersonal attachment, social validation, or societal integration.
