Abstract

The author reviews literature relating to the use of activities in the treatment of chronic schizophrenia, citing several programs that combined activities and psychotherapy to produce effective modes of treatment. He also describes a program in which he used collagemaking to help a group of schizophrenic women improve interpersonal relationships, reality-testing, and self-image as well as to help them express problems and develop feelings of autonomy. The author believes that such combined programs help meet the basic needs of schizophrenic patients and alleviate their tendencies to withdraw from their surroundings.
