@Daimon will read this post in whatever =state= his mind is in at the time. The objective any truly effective and functional therapy will be to help him develop a higher (“mindful” and “metacognitve” – see below) sense of self that can see his sz symptoms from up outside the box of those symptoms and and states.

For my money, DBT is still the “Cadillac” for this, but when one is suffering from as much stress as may be the case here, a simpler, easier-to-comprehend approach may work better, like MBBT or even MBSR followed by MBBT or DBT. (The “success” of DBT depends a lot on the skills of the skills trainer. Those who are mechanistic or authoritarian in some “one size fits all” scheme can botch the process once and for all. Both therapist and skill trainer MUST meet the patient where the patient is.)

All that said, here’s some info on the therapies mentioned above, followed by some suggested workbooks.

MBCTs:
DBT – http://behavioraltech.org/resources/whatisdbt.cfm
MBSR – http://www.mindfullivingprograms.com/whatMBSR.php
ACT – https://contextualscience.org/act
MBBT – https://www.newharbinger.com/blog/introduction-mind-body-bridging-i-system

or standard CBTs, like…
REBT – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rational_emotive_behavior_therapy
Schematherapy – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schema_Therapy
Learned Optimism – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learned_optimism
