  • Interactionist approach to treating schizophrenia. AO3
    • HOGARTY ET AL (1986)
      • medication only= 40% relapse rate medication + social skills training=20% medication + family therapy =20% all three = 0%
      • Patients followed up over 1 year period, relapse rates measured
      • Supports the interactionist approach because as the number of treatments increases, first year relapse rates decrease.
      • Better at preventing relapse than single treatments alone
      • RELAPSE
        • A follow up study (after 2 years) suggested combined treatment only DELAYED relapse rather than prevented it
        • Not effective in the long term
    • MORRISON & TURKINGTON (2014)
      • Drug treatment + CBT = better rates of symptom reduction and relapse than drugs/CBT alone
      • Demonstrates effectiveness of an interactionist treatment
    • COMBINATIONS ALLOW FOCUS ON DIFFERENT THINGS
      • Biological therapies (antipsychotics) address disordered thinking, Behavioural therapies address teaching functional social skills.
      • Without the biological therapies, patients would be too disordered for behavioural therapies to be effective
    • VALUE FOR MONEY
      • Initially more expensive
      • More effective, outweighs cost. Not likely to need treatment in the future
      • Cost effective in the long term
    • NEGATIVE EFFECTS
      • Combined treatments can have negative effects
      • Eg: Patients doing CBT and and drug therapy may see the side effects of their drugs in a delusional manner
      • Increases mistrust and decreases likelihood of patients complying to their medication regime- decreases effectiveness
