CBT for psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia works by having the client experience all the symptoms like delusions and hallucinations, without feeling distressed, CBT focuses not on getting rid but managing the symptom and being in control of how you react to that.
Although schizophrenia is a long term disease the course of CBT is to be taken for 16-18 months at maximum. This is a short term therapy and enables the client to manage the symptoms on their own during this span. The therapy can be repeated if needed if the client requires further assistance anytime in future.
