Course Description: Pharmacological treatment of schizophrenia can be more effective when combined with psychotherapy and psychosocial interventions. The authors of the present study reviewed and evaluated five sets of international guidelines on the use of psychosocial interventions for treating  schizophrenia. Although not always consistent in their specific recommendations, these guidelines all reflect evidence that psychosocial interventions improve the long-term outcomes of treatment. The authors recommend more research on the efficacy of psychosocial interventions, more resources allocated to psychosocial rehabilitation, and an update of the international guidelines based on recent evidence.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the main types of psychosocial interventions that have been used in the treatment of schizophrenia, and note how effective each type seems to be
  2. Describe the main guidelines proposed by international organizations for the use of psychosocial interventions in the treatment of schizophrenia
  3. Integrate the strengths and limitations of the study, and summarize the clinical implications for psychosocial interventions that support patients with schizophrenia

  • Identify the types of psychosocial interventions that have been used in the treatment of schizophrenia
