Two patients with florid symptoms and severely disturbed behaviours were treated with a cognitive-behavioural programme. The programme aimed to facilitate the patients' and their carers' ability to adaptively cope with the distress generated by the patients' florid symptoms. Both patients actively co-operated and responded with a marked reduction in symptoms and behavioural disturbance.
