Abstract

Although the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in schizophrenia has been established for persistent psychotic symptoms, little information is available on the effects of CBT in the pre-psychotic phase. We developed a comprehensive CBT program for clients in the early initial prodromal state that showed good feasibility and promising treatment effects in an uncontrolled prospective study. The specificity of these effects needs to be explored in a controlled trial.
