ABSTRACT: This paper examines the evidence for the use of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) within acute mental health-care settings. Through the provision of a literature review the authors critique the research into the effectiveness of CBT when delivered within acute mental health-care settings, to clients who are acutely psychotic. The review concludes with recommendations for future research to expand the current evidence base.
