SILVESTRE GARCIA, Margarita; INGELMO FERNANDEZ, Joaquín  and  GARCIA-ORDAS ALVAREZ, Alfonso. Group psychotherapeutic approach in schizophrenia. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.118, pp.289-300. ISSN 2340-2733.

The present study attempts to reflect theoretically on a group experience conducted over several years with schizophrenic patients, in the logical context of combined treatment (psychiatric drugs, psychotherapy, rehabilitation therapies). The creation of a therapeutic group space for the treatment of patients diagnosed with schizophrenia carries with it the implicit notion that these patients meet to articulate and integrate in a shared way their experiences as schizophrenic patients, their experiences resulting from the various kinds of therapeutic attention, and obviously their individual life experiences. In this sense group psychotherapy constitutes the basic element and support of the experiences that these patients encounter during the process of their illness.

Keywords : Dynamic-oriented group therapy; Schizophrenia; Combined treatments; Psychiatric drugs; Rehabilitation therapies.
