Brain function improved in 22 people diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia after they completed a six-month program of cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis (CBTp). The improvement in brain function led to an improvement in symptoms. Over the next eight years, those who completed CBTp were in full or partial remission for an average of 93% of months. They had low affective symptoms for an average of 88% of months over the eight years.
These findings were reported in “Brain Connectivity Changes Occurring Following Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For Psychosis Predict Long-Term Recovery,” by L. Mason, E. Peters, S.C. Williams . . .
