MEA, Cristina Pilla Della; ZANCANELLA, Sabrina; FERREIRA, Vinícius Renato Thomé  e  WAGNER, Márcia Fortes. Early maladaptive schemas in hospitalized patients for suicide attempt. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.1, pp. 3-9. ISSN 1808-5687.

Suicidal behavior is an important issue for mental health, and a proper assessment of its occurrence and association with psychological factors are critical for risk monitoring and treatment. Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMS), which are long-lasting emotional and cognitive patterns originated in childhood and are repeated throughout life, may be related to this behavior. This study consisted of a quantitative research, with exploratory and correlational design, which aimed to identify EMS present in 15 patients with suicide attempt admitted to a psychiatric hospital compared to 25 people in a non-clinical sample who answered a socio-demographic questionnaire and the Young Schema Questionnaire - short version (YSQ-S2). The results showed that the clinical sample had more impairments in all EMS compared to the non-clinical sample; furthermore, defectiveness/shame, social isolation and disconnection were the EMS that showed the greatest number of strong correlations with others. Proper evaluation of these EMS may have clinical relevance in evaluating suicidal behavior.
