Show Summary Details


Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for schizophrenia focuses on the core psychotic symptoms of hallucinations and delusions. Other psychosocial approaches to psychosis (e.g. intervention with families and to promote medication compliance) also frequently use CBT techniques. In this chapter, however, we focus on CBT for delusional beliefs and other psychotic phenomena and review evidence for its efficacy.
