Across multiple disciplines of psychology, one commonly used heuristic device, the schema, has often been called upon to illustrate the integration of an event. This paper is a critical examination of the literature on schemas and traumatic events. Three perspectives are identified: process-focused models, content-focused models, and construct-focused models. Process-focused models most clearly elucidate the change mechanisms and provide specific treatment implications in terms of exposure-based interventions. Content-focused models provide clinicians and researchers with hypothesized thematic conflicts that may need to be addressed in treatment. Construct-focused models and methodologies may provide a means by which researchers can represent and quantify the degree of conceptual integration of a traumatic event. The concepts of schema formation, activation, and modification are explored from each perspective. Implications for assessment and clinical interventions are also discussed.
