Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1238. Reviews the book, Person Schemas and Maladaptive Interpersonal Patterns edited by Mardi J. Horowitz (1991). Person schemas, according to Horowitz, are structures of meanings that integrate knowledge of self and others. These mental structures can work either consciously or unconsciously, organizing thoughts, mood states, self-analysis, and interpersonal actions. This volume first describes the concept of person schema and then demonstrates how this construct can be used to analyze clinical material derived from two cases that are described in great detail.
