This unique manual presents cognitive-behavioral social skills training (CBBST), a step-by-step, empirically supported intervention that helps clients with schizophrenia achieve recovery goals related to living, learning, working, and socializing. CBSST interweaves three evidence-based practices—cognitive-behavioral therapy, social skills training, and problem-solving training—and can be delivered in individual or group contexts. Highly user friendly, the manual includes provider scripts, teaching tools, and engaging exercises and activities. Reproducible consumer workbooks for each module include skills summaries and worksheets. The large-size format facilitates photocopying; purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

Listed in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices.

“This book represents a milestone in the accelerating efforts to design and empirically validate new treatments that will enable persons with schizophrenia to recover and live without the stigma of psychotic symptoms and disability. Medications, while important in the treatment of symptoms, have never taught anyone anything. The work of Granholm and his colleagues is unique in providing step-by-step methods for implementing, monitoring, and evaluating CBSST to improve the community functioning of persons with schizophrenia. This is a long-awaited ‘must read' for practitioners in psychology, social work, and psychiatry.”

—Robert Paul Liberman, MD, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine
