Abstract

On the grounds of the literature and her own experience the author discusses the importance of psychoeducational interventions for increasing schizophrenic patients' compliance with pharmacological treatment (and thus, for improvement of therapy outcome). Moreover, research findings are cited indicating a higher effectiveness of structured behavioral training as compared to non-structured educational sessions. (ed.)
