Accordingly, demographic information form, Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (Hewitt & Flett, 1991a; 1991b), three Early Maladaptive Schema (Emotional Inhibition, Unrelenting Standards-Hypercriticalness, Approval. Seeking-Recognition Seeking) items from Young Schema Questionnaire (Young & Brown 2001), Film Ozdeslesme Olcegi, developed for the present purposes, were administered to 34 Turkish university students at pre-, post-, and a 10 days follow-up. One of the two groups in this study only watched the selected film and completed assessment devices and the other group watched the selected film and additionally got a briefing about perfectionism. According to results, watching the selected film had an effect on participant's perfectionism and no effect on perfectionism related schemas. However, it was found that watching the selected film had a temporary effect on Emotional Inhibition Schema when schemas were analyzed separately. Results also showed that participants did not identify themselves with the film characters.
