The scheme therapy was performed in 15 sessions in groups and individually and one session weekly. Subjects were tested in four stages. Data analysis was performed using repeated measures analysis of variance. Results: The results showed the effect of schema therapy on improving early maladaptive schemas after 4 months, but there was no statistically significant difference in the reduction of depression and anxiety symptoms. However, in the ABA chart, the amount of changes in the scores of depression, anxiety, and second domain of maladaptive schemas was noticeable.
