Abstract: The relationship between the psychodynamic concept of personality organization (PO) and Young’s cognitive
model of personality pathology was studied in a sample of 117 patients that were referred to
Schema Focused Therapy for severe personality pathology. Principal Component Analysis was used to
reduce the number of Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMSs) and schema modes variables. The higher order
factors identified were theoretically meaningful from the perspective of Young’s schema theory and were
comparable to those found in other samples. Second, results also provided evidence for the assumption
that different schemas and schema mode factors are associated with levels of personality organization in
theoretically predicted ways. Implications of these findings for assessment and treatment of personality
pathology are discussed.
