Studies on CBT for psychosis have been ongoing since the early 1990s and have followed the traditional steps of psychotherapy research, whereby we find initial feasibility studies with no or poor control groups; larger, carefully controlled trials focusing on specific populations (high-risk, early psychosis, older participants, treatment-resistant) or on symptoms or models; process-oriented studies; and integrative studies looking at CBT merged with other therapeutic models. Results from the best-designed meta-analyses as well as from group CBT studies are also summarized in tables. The results of our own studies on group CBT for psychosis are also presented. Finally, the chapter covers results from studies looking into who benefits more from CBT for psychosis, what therapeutic elements are necessary, and offers suggestions for studies that are warranted.
