Our expert says:
It wouldn't make much sense to try specific behaviour mod techniques on someone at that moment having an acute psychotic episode and while their mental functioning is disturbed by it. Just as one wouldn't try behaviour mod ( except in the crudest sense !) with someone who was drunk at the time. However, there is some evidence that behaviour therapy / CBT can help relieve some symptoms and more definitely, improve some types of functioning, in more chronic psychotic illness such as schizophrenia, though many people might not expect this to be so
