dc.description.abstractThis article presents a comparison of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) versus other psychosocial treatments for schizophrenia. The article reviews the studies which were focused on psychosocial treatments for schizophrenia. The comparison arm of the trials reported other psychosocial therapies, such as supportive therapy, psychoeducation, family therapy, and other "talking therapies." The full review distinguishes between trials that described "active" psychosocial interventions (eg, family therapy) aimed at a meaningful symptom reduction and those trials that have used "non active" psychosocial interventions (eg, supportive therapy), which act as merely a control for the nonspecific effects of therapy. As conclusion the use of CBT has been associated with some reduction in symptoms, particularly affective problems associated with having such a serious illness. As findings of the various studies it is not possible to assert any substantial benefit for CBT over other psychological therapies. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
