At the stage of active therapy normalization of behavior, elimination of psychomotor arousal, reduction of psychotic symptoms severity; partial resumption of criticism was the ultimate aim. At the stage of stabilizing antipsychotic therapy - reverse development of residual productive symptoms and reduction of negative, affective and cognitive symptoms, increasing of social adaptation; at the stage of supportive (preventive) antipsychotic therapy - maintaining the optimal level of social functioning of the patient. Conclusion: The use of complex measures of psychotherapy and psychosocial rehabilitation developed allowed to level psychotic manifestations and form a stable remission, reduce maladaptive manifestations in psycho-emotional and cognitive spheres, improve social functioning of a patient and his family.
