Abstract

Schema Therapy is an integrative, evidence-based method for treating personality disorders (PDs), which has been adapted for forensic populations. In this chapter, we review the Forensic Schema Therapy theoretical model and treatment approach, as well as research evidence bearing on these topics. We discuss the specific modifications needed to adapt Schema Therapy to forensic populations. We also review recent developments in Forensic Schema Therapy, including Schema Therapy for youth with externalizing behavior problems and emerging PDs in residential treatment and SafePath, a therapeutic milieu-based version of Schema Therapy.
