Psychologists Jeffrey E. Young, Ph.D. and Janet S. Klosko, Ph.D. developed the concept of lifetraps as a more compassionate way of dealing with traditional personality styles. Drawing on breakthrough insights from cognitive therapy, their model focuses not just on diagnosis, but on the destructive messages that people internalize early in life, as well as how to change them.
