Abstract

People with schizophrenia and severe mental illness may require considerable support from health care professionals, in most cases over a long period of time. Research on the effects of psychotherapy for schizophrenia shows mixed results. Although pharmacological interventions remain the treatment of choice for schizophrenia patients, it is also of interest to look at the effects of treatment methods focusing on psychosocial factors affecting schizophrenia. To review the effects of individual psychodynamic psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis for people with schizophrenia or severe mental illness. Electronic searches of Biological Abstracts (1985-1999), CINAHL (1982-1999), The Cochrane Library CENTRAL (Issue 1, 1999), The Cochrane Schizophrenia Group's Register (2000), Dissertation Abstracts On Disc (1866-1999), EMBASE (1980-1999), MEDLINE (1966-1999), National Research Register (2000), PsycLIT (1974-1999), and Sociofile (1974-1998) were made. Authors of included trials were contacted for information on further trials. All randomised trials of individual psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis for people with schizophrenia or severe mental illness (however defined) were selected. Data were independently extracted by at least two reviewers. For dichotomous data relative risks (RR) were calculated and for continuous data weighted mean differences (WMD) between groups were calculated. No trials of a psychoanalytic approach were identified. Data are sparse for all comparisons involving a psychodynamic approach. There is no evidence of any positive effect of psychodynamic therapy and the possibility of adverse effects seems never to have been considered. The psychodynamic approach may be more acceptable to people than a more cognitive reality-adaptive therapy. Current data do not support the use of psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques for hospitalised people with schizophrenia. If psychoanalytic therapy is being used for people with schizophrenia there is an urgent need for trials.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 23. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 December 2021.
All research outputs
#1,374,614
of 22,608,005 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#3,152
of 12,289 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,094
of 41,967 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#1
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,608,005 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,289 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 30.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 41,967 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 97% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
