This study aims to show the effect of applying ST Jeffrey Young, and CBT in a case with a patient with MAAD and fibromyalgia. The evaluation phase was performed through a free clinical interview during 4 sessions, during which the Beck anxiety inventory, the Beck depression inventory, the pain scale, and the YSQ.L2 were applied. The intervention phases were carried out during 10 sessions lasting one hour each. During the intervention, cognitive techniques such as cognitive restructuring, Socratic dialogue and self-registration, behavioural, experiential and emotional techniques were applied (Beck, 1960). At the end of the process, the same tests previously mentioned were applied, evidencing significant effects by decreasing scores of ill adaptive schemes, anxiety symptoms, and depression.
