For adults with schizophrenia or related disorders, how effective is brief Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) compared to standard duration CBT in improving all patient outcomes?
One, generally well conducted Cochrane systematic review found
no studies comparing brief cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to
standard CBT in people with schizophrenia or related disorders.
Therefore, it is not currently possible to determine whether brief
CBT is as effective, less effective or even more effective than
standard courses of the same therapy.
As noted by the review authors, well planned, conducted and
reported randomised trials are indicated.
