The current study aimed to determine the path between childhood maltreatment and schema domains (i.e., Impaired Limits/Exaggerated Standards (ILES), Disconnection/Rejection (DR), Impaired Autonomy/Other Directedness (IAOD)), which is followed with the psychopathological symptomatology (i.e., Depressive Symptomatology, and Anxiety Symptomatology) after controlling for other possible stressors in everyday life. For these purposes, after necessary approval was taken data was collected from 414 participants between the ages of 18 and 32, through Childhood Trauma Questionnaire - Short Form, Young Schema Questionnaire -Short Form 3, Beck Depression Inventory, Beck Anxiety Inventory, and Life Events Inventory (LEI). To test this path, two sets of hierarchical regression analyses were conducted. Specifically, results revealed that significant associations of Emotional Abuse, and Sexual Abuse with ILES schema domain; Emotional Neglect, Physical Abuse, and Sexual Abuse with DR schema domain; and Physical Abuse, and Sexual Abuse with IAOD schema domains were exist. Moreover, Schema domains of DR and IAOD were found to be positively associated with depression symptomatology, whereas only IAOD schema domain was found to be positively associated with anxiety symptomatology. Lastly, Emotional Neglect, and Sexual Abuse were associated with Depression. These results underlined the crucial role of early maladaptive schemas on the relationship between childhood maltreatment and psychopathology
