BARRETO, Eliza Martha de Paiva  e  ELKIS, Hélio. Evidences from the efficacy of the cognitive behavior therapy on schizophrenia. Rev. psiquiatr. clín. [online]. 2007, vol.34, suppl.2, pp. 204-207. ISSN 0101-6083.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-60832007000800011.

BACKGROUND: Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is one of the most efficacious psychotherapic techniques employed for the treatment of psychoses. OBJECTIVE: The authors review the evidence from the main clinical trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses where CBT was applied in the treatment of schizophrenia as well as other disorders of the psychotic spectrum. The main techniques utilized in the trials are also described. METHOD: PubMed and Cochrane search of randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: The randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses show that CBT is efficacious for certain symptoms of schizophrenia and may represent an add-on therapy for patients who are refractory to antipsychotics.
