First episode psychosis antipsychotics versus CBT


What is CBT @firemonkey?.

Thanx For The Link!.

Very Impressive!.

Any Personal Thoughts on CBT @Firemonkey?.

CBT and psychosis is a very contentious area of psychiatry. A leading supporter of it is Peter Kinderman. A leading sceptic about it is Keith Laws.

Severe sz cannot be treated with CBT so it depends on severity. Severe szics are out of reality and won’t cooperate with a psychologist. I am still like that even with meds.

That’s a point that’s been raised by those who are sceptical about the benefits of CBT for psychosis . That those at the milder end of psychosis tend to be used in such studies.
