Cognitive behavioural therapy for risk management in schizophrenia

Matthew Wilson Nurse consultant, Leeds Mental Health Teaching NHS Trust and associate lecturer, Leeds Metropolitan University, St Mary’s Hospital, Armley, Leeds

This article proposes that cognitive behavioural therapy–as recommended by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (2002)–can be used to form part of a risk management strategy for people diagnosed with schizophrenia. This may be a more effective and acceptable intervention because of its collaborative nature. The article includes case studies from practice to illustrate strategies that can be used.
