    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Background: Cognitive-behavioural treatments have previously been explored in the treatment of chronic psychotic problems, but recently, the effectiveness of these treatments has been investigated with regard to recent onset and acute psychosis. Method: The literature relating to cognitive- behavioural treatments in psychosis is explored and the application of the approach to recent onset psychosis is described in detail. Results: There appears to be a growing body of evidence that the advances made in the treatment of people with chronic treatment resistant psychosis can be similarly applied to people with recent onset and acute psychosis. Conclusions: Cognitive-behavioural treatments are feasible with recent onset psychotic patients although further evaluation of their effectiveness is necessary.
