Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that teaches people to recognise and change harmful thought patterns that affect their feelings and behaviors. Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on modifying automatic negative thinking that can aggravate emotional problems, and anxiety. These irrational negative ideas have an adverse influence on one’s mood.
CBT is shown to be effective in helping with multiple distressing symptoms of Schizophrenia. Crucially, it helps a person cope with and understand the different symptoms of the disorder.
The duration of the treatment option depends on the nature and severity of the disorder. Only a mental health professional will be able to accurately tell you how long the treatment will last.
