The present study is about the validation of the Young Schema Questionnaire 3rd version and the Schema Mode Inventory 2nd version on the Greek population. The participants were both male (58.7%) and female (41.2%). The participants were also without psychopathology, outpatients and inpatients, varied in ages from 19 to 62 years, with the majority being in the age group between 31 - 35. From the analysis conducted, both questionnaires’ factors had high internal consistency in all three participant’s groups. We have also conducted a Pearson analysis between the Early Maladaptive Schemas and Schema Modes, which produced some strong positive and negative correlations. Finally in the present study, we are presenting a Cohen analysis conducted between the three different groups of participants (non-patients, outpatients and inpatients).
