The National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommend that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) should be offered on an individual basis to all persons with a diagnosis of schizophrenia (NICE, 2009). Despite endeavours to implement the NICE guidelines in reality there may not be enough resources (Jones et al. , 2007). The NHS is undergoing a drive to increase productivity and economic viability, whilst offering evidence based treatments. Group treatments could increase access to CBT for psychosis. Currently no studies compare individual and group CBT for psychosis and research into group CBT has not been considered in the guideline for schizophrenia (NICE, 2009). The main objective of this review is to identify potential outcomes of group CBT and assess how they compare to those of individual CBT for psychosis. I shall draw upon evidence from a range of studies with participants experiencing different stages of psychosis. Methodological considerations and directions for future research will be discussed and implications for practice will be explored.
