Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on cognitive-behavioral interventions for people with psychosis, including individual and family interventions. It examines the key components of each intervention, the underlying models, and the evidence base related to outcomes. The chapter first considers individual cognitive-behavioral therapy and cognitive models of psychosis before turning to family interventions, with particular emphasis on the importance of informal caregiving relationships, positive communication styles, facilitated information sharing, improved problem-solving skills, and emotional processing. It concludes by outlining future directions for cognitive-behavioral interventions for people with psychosis.
