CBT Addresses Most-Debilitating Symptoms in Chronic Schizophrenia

Patients are taught to view challenges such as difficulty in information processing, psychiatric symptoms, and isolation as solvable problems that can be neutralized as they move toward their goals.

Recovery-oriented cognitive therapy (CT-R) appears to be highly successful in the treatment of individuals with chronic schizophrenia who have difficulty integrating into the community.
A new cognitive-behavior therapeutic strategy is helping patients overcome major obstacles to their recovery, especially the negative symptoms—lack of motivation, anhedonia, and asocial behavior—that are considered to be the most intransigent and disabling for patients with schizophrenia. The strategy has been implemented throughout the Philadelphia public mental health system and in Georgia
