PROTESONI, Ana Luz  e  GRILLE, Sofía. Early maladaptive schemas in women with breast cancer and their association with health-related quality of life. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.3, pp.40-59.  Epub 30-Nov-2022. ISSN 1688-7026.

Breast cancer is a disease that generates alert in women and its incidence is expected to increase even more. Cancer diagnosis and treatments are disruptive phenomenon. It is estimated that cancer women activates thought patterns, emotions and relational patterns (early maladaptive schemas, EDT). In this study, we evaluated the EDTs prevalence during different onco-specific treatments and their relationship with quality of life related to health (HRQoL). We use a descriptive and correlational design. We included 228 outpatients, users of the Uruguayan public health system. To assess HRQoL, we applied a sociodemographic and biomedical form, the EDT Test and the FACT-B. The most used EDTs were Self-Sacrifice and Unattainable Goals. The EDTs turned out to be sensitive to the different treatments, especially to surgery without breast reconstruction, where Overvaluation predominated. HRQoL was directly associated with the EDTs of Emotional Deprivation, Abandonment, Attachment, Vulnerability and Shame. We conclude that women with breast cancer use different EDTs with which they react to the disease and the treatments. The use of EDTs impacts the perception of well-being.
