I think that schizophrenia is probably the most interesting psychological disorder. Schizophrenia is related to a combination of biological and psychosocial mechanisms that are interrelated. The treatment of schizophrenia is complicated and involves multiple treatment modalities. Usually, people who develop schizophrenia are treated with anti-psychotic medication in the hopes of reducing the frequency of active symptoms. However, individuals with schizophrenia can benefit from certain forms of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. People with this disorder tend to respond well to concrete forms of therapy that emphasize behavioral modification and reinforcement. Schizophrenia is best treated with a combination of psychoactive medication and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
