Background & Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the direct effect of early maladaptive schemas and the direct effect of causal attribution styles on psychological Adjustment to cancer.
Materials & Methods: The study type is structural equation (SEM) and was conducted on a sample of 400 women with cancer in Urmia using the Questionnaires of Young Schema (SF-YSQ), attributional Style (ASQ) and Adjustment to Cancer (Mini-Mac). PLS software was used for data analysis.
Results: There is a significant direct relationship between the areas of early maladaptive schemas and causal attribution styles with the path coefficient of 0.617 (P <001). Also, there is a significant direct relationship between the areas of early maladaptive schemas and psychological adaptation to cancer with a path coefficient of 0.496, an indirect relationship with a path coefficient of 0.079 and a total effect of 0.575 (P <001). There is a significant direct relationship between causal attribution styles and psychological adaptation to cancer with a path coefficient of 0.20 (P <001). In the Q2 index, the value of Red CV obtained for the variable of causal attribution styles is equal to 0.252 and the variable of psychological compatibility with cancer is equal to 0.204.
Conclusion: The exogenous variable of early maladaptive schema areas has a direct effect on the endogenous variable of causal attribution styles and a direct and indirect effect through the variable of causal attribution styles on the endogenous variable of psychological Adjustment to cancer. The endogenous variable of causal attribution styles also has a direct effect on the variable of psychological Adjustment to cancer. The general conclusion is that the model has the ability to predict and fit and is well made.
