Because there are many types of schizophrenia, there are also many types of therapy available for those who suffer from the disorder. Your doctor may prescribe different kinds of therapy, depending on the disorder that you suffer from or your symptoms. One type of therapy people with schizophrenia may find useful is one-on-one therapy. In these sessions, trained professionals can help people with the disorder learn to manage and prevent their symptoms. Another kind of therapy is given to help people with schizophrenia learn how to get a job and develop career skills. In addition, people with schizophrenia may undergo therapy that helps them interact with others on a social level. Finally, therapy is also available for loved ones of those with schizophrenia. This type of therapy can help these individuals understand the disorder and deal with their thoughts and emotions about that disorder.
