There is accumulating evidence, reviewed by Caudiano (this issue), that cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is an effective adjunct treatment for schizophrenia. Schizophrenia treatment and research provides a range of challenges that are probably not present in other mental health problems. These include contextual issues, clinical issues, scientific and methodological issues, practical and pragmatic issues, public concern, and human rights issues. This paper discusses these issues with emphasis on the clinical and research challenges for the future.
