In order to improve the treatment of medication-resistant negative symptoms inschizophrenia, new interventions are needed. Neuropsychological considerations and older reportsin the literature point towards a potential benefit of body-oriented psychological therapy (BPT).
This is the first randomized controlled trial specifically designed to test the effectiveness ofmanualized BPT on negative symptoms in chronic schizophrenia.
Method. Out-patients with DSM-IV continuous schizophrenia were randomly allocated to eitherBPT (n=24) or supportive counseling (SC, n=21). Both therapies were administered in smallgroups in addition to treatment as usual (20 sessions over 10 weeks). Changes in negative symptomscores on the Positive and Negative Symptom Scale (PANSS) between baseline, post-treatment and4-month follow-up were taken as primary outcome criteria in an intention-to-treat analysis.
Results. Patients receiving BPT attended more sessions and had significantly lower negativesymptom scores after treatment (PANSS negative, blunted affect, motor retardation). The differ-ences held true at 4-month follow-up. Other aspects of psychopathology and subjective qualityof life did not change significantly in either group. Treatment satisfaction and ratings of thetherapeutic relationship were similar in both groups.
Conclusions. BPT may be an effective treatment for negative symptoms in patients with chronicschizophrenia. The findings should merit further trials with larger sample sizes and detailed studiesto explore the therapeutic mechanisms involved.

We report analytic practice. The earliest trials influenced here the first randomized controlled trial of BPT for patients with schizophrenia in recent Californian dance therapist Schoop. She started history. The trial tested the hypothesis that BPT to work with hospitalized schizophrenia patients is effective in reducing negative symptoms in 1959, and her ‘ body-ego technique ’ aimed in out-patients with schizophrenia. To control to focus patients’ attention ‘ on body posture for the influence of non-specific attention and and movement … body-ego boundaries … and structured group activities BPT was compared reality contact and experience in movement ’ (May et al. 1963 ; Goertzel et al. 1965). A trialshowed a significant improvement in patients treated with the technique, compared withcontrols, especially in affective contact, motility and general functioning (Goertzel et al. 1965).
