My own marked preference in the average case of schizophrenia is individual psychotherapy, although with numerous patients I use a mixed psychotherapy and drug therapy. My “bias” is based on the belief that physical therapies, as far as we know or can infer, produce only a symptomatic improvement, whereas psychotherapy tends to (1) remove the basic conflicts which are important and necessary causative elements of the disorder; (2) correct the psychopathologic patterns; (3) change the self-image of the patient and therefore make him less vulnerable; and (4) permit the regenerative psychological powers of the organism to regain the lost ground.
