These maladaptive themes, called schemas, operate mostly outside the person's awareness. Such schemas are activated in the present tense through child, maladaptive coping, and dysfunctional parent modes.

Stressful life events can precipitate a depressive episode and depression can make it difficult for an individual to manage such stressful events. Stressful life events fall into four primary categories - complicated bereavement, role disputes (conflict with significant others), role transitions (in work, relationships, or life events/stages), and interpersonal deficits (lack of adequate social support network).
