This article presents data on the Young Cognitive Schema Questionnaire – S2 applied on a Romanian sample. Clinical and nonclinical subjects were included in the study (N=744). The internal consistency coefficients, test-retest reliability and discriminative validity were determined, using both clinical and non-clinical samples. The results reported in this paper are generally consistent with those found in earlier normative studies involving English- and non-English samples (e.g., Dutch and Finnish).
Keywords: maladaptive cognitive schemas, internal consistency, test-retest reliability, discriminative validity
