Negative Self Schema

Beck (1967) believed that people with negative self schemas make errors in their thinking and they concentrate on certain aspects of a situation while ignoring equally relevant information.

He also came up with the Negative Cognitive Triad, which illustrates how negative thoughts are about the self, the world, and the future
