Background and Aim: Schema modes include specific schemata and coping styles which are activated in emotional situations. They create formation of behavioral patterns compatible with their own schemata. The purpose of this study was to predict the quality of life in vitiligo patients according to their schema modes.

Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study,170 vitiligo patients were selected by simple random sampling method. They filled Schema Modes Inventory and brief form of the World Health Organization`s Quality of Life questionnaire. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficient, and stepwise regression.

Results: The results of the analysis of the Pearson correlation coefficient revealed that quality of life was related to all schema modes except detached self-soother mode. Happy child and healthy adult schema modes had a significant positive relationship with quality of life, while the other schema modes (except detached self-soother) had a significant negative relationship with quality of life in vitiligo patients. Also, the results of stepwise regression showed that vulnerable child, detached protector, compliant surrender and happy child schema modes had the strongest effect in predicting the quality of life, respectively.

Conclusion: Regarding the importance of the role of schema modes in quality of life in vitiligo patients, offering psychotherapies such as schema therapy seems necessary.
