Abstract

Introduction: Child abuse can lead to destructive long term consequences, in addition to the short term ones. The present study aims to examine the relationship between childhood abuse experience and primary stress confronting methods and maladaptive schemas. Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional analytic study. The study subjects were randomly selected using multiple sampling method. First, 6 counseling centers were selected from counseling centers in western Tehran using cluster sampling; then a sample of 318 persons (192 women and 126 men) were identified and studied from these centers. The data collecting instruments were Child Abuse Self Report Scales (CASRS) and Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ) and the methods of Billings and Moos�s Coping Styles Questionnaire (CSQ). Data analysis was performed through T tests and correlative coefficient and multiple regressions by SPSS software version 19.  Results: Findings showed a negative relationship between problem solving methods and acquiring social support with each of the four subscale of abuse (p=0.01) and a positive relationship between cognitive evaluation and emotional control (p=0.01). Also, the total score of the primary maladaptive schemas has a significant positive relationship with each of the four abuse subscales (p=0.01). There is a significant difference between men and women in physical and emotional abuse subscales and problem solving, emotional control and maladaptive schemas methods subscales. Emotional abuse and negligence subscales could predict the primary maladaptive schemas and stress confronting methods.  Conclusion: Experiencing childhood abuse has a basic role in forming the primary maladaptive schemas and thrill-oriented responses.
