Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the mediating role of early maladaptive schemas (EMSs) in the relationship between perceived maternal rejection during childhood and current psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression, in Turkish university students. EMSs were categorized according to 3 schema domains; impaired limits-exaggerated standards, disconnection-rejection, and impaired autonomy-other directedness.
