The Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Schizophrenia: The State of the Art and the Evidence
Gaudiano, Brandon A.
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v2 n1 p1-11 2006
Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders are associated with high degrees of impairment and often respond inadequately to pharmacotherapy alone. In recent years, numerous clinical trials have been published showing the benefits of adjunctive cognitive behavior therapy for treating psychosis. However, research in this area has been hampered by the inherent problems conducting psychotherapy research in severely mentally ill populations. This paper provides a brief overview of the cognitive-behavioral treatment of psychosis and discusses the state of the evidence in this area, including its many unresolved issues.
