Background and Objectives: Disruptive mood dysregulation is one of the mood disorders which causes functional problems and has many treatment challenges.

The experimental group was treated in 10 sessions (60 min for the child and 30 min for the mother), and the control group did not receive any intervention. Data were analyzed using repeated measures analysis of variance.
Results: The results showed that the effect of schema therapy on emotional regulation and social competence was significant and remained stable in the follow-up phase (P<0.001).
