Group CBT for Clients With a First Episode of Schizophrenia
This article describes the rationale for and the content of a 24-session group cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) tailored to the needs of individuals following a first episode of psychosis. The CBT group approach aims to increase coping with psychotic symptoms as well as help clients deal with other clinical realities such as low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, suicide and substance abuse. Qualitative results, regarding process and satisfaction with treatment, are promising and suggest further investigation of this group intervention.
