TIZON, Jorge L.. Combined therapies for schizophrenia: Add, mix and confuse, or rather deconstruct and combine?. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2004, n.90, pp.97-129. ISSN 0211-5735.
Paper points out a reflection on the current state of the therapeutic programs or combined therapies using diverse types of biological, psychological and psycho-socials therapies. The topic is illustrated with clinical examples from the treatments of agoraphobics or schizophrenics patients. The fundamental Conclusion is that, nowadays, with some exceptions, more than combined therapies we are practising aggregations of therapies or indeed mixed and more or less confused therapies. Among other reasons, because we have not enough account about the approaches of quality of a therapy, a consideration episthemologically stricter of those that it should be a combination of therapies, and the necessity of of-building the previous therapies and those combined and of investigating the effectiveness, efficiency, accessibility, and so on, of their components. With the purpose of facilitating tools for the reflection, I expose several thesis and principles for the organization of this therapies and I mention some intents in such a sense.
