The findings of a new study by researchers at King’s College London and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust shows for the first time that cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) strengthens specific connections in the brains of people with psychosis, and that these stronger connections are associated with long-term reduction in symptoms and recovery eight years later. CBT is a specific type of talking therapy that helps people to change the way they think about and respond to their thoughts and experiences.
