Default Re: Schema Therapy Article

Thanks, I finally read the article, and I moved onto Jeffery Young's book. I don't have a copy right in front of me. So, I may not quite present this correctly.

I have a question. Am I reading correctly? Does Young propose that in order to keep clients in therapy, who might otherwise be inclined to leave, that the therapist not treat the schema causing the pain, using the emotional pain caused by the schema as leverage to keep him/her there, while at the same time also using the attachment formed in therapy between client and therapist to hold a client in therapy?

I think he's distinguishing between treatment of schemas v personality disorders.
