Answer

Psychosocial treatment is essential for people with schizophrenia and includes a number of approaches, such as social skills training, cognitive-behavioral therapy, cognitive remediation, and social cognition training. [113] PORT (see Antipsychotic Pharmacotherapy) also provides a detailed review of psychosocial interventions. [114]
