    Notes: Summary The treatment of two groups of paranoid schizophrenic patients with group psychotherapy was approached with the following goals in mind: (1) to maintain a group in treatment on an out-patient basis by means of ego supportive psychotherapy and drugs as necessary; (2) to help patients within the group to achieve more successful or healthy adjustments to social, family, and employment relationships by means of the group process. The theoretical and practical considerations in the use of group therapy in the treatment of schizophrenic patients are presented in this paper. Members of a spontaneously-formed patient subgroup obtain more beneficial and therapeutic results in group psychotherapy than non-subgroup members. It is felt that group therapy can be successfully used to provide adequate and intensive treatment for an out-patient schizophrenic population. For some schizophrenic patients in a general hospital psychiatric clinic setting such as the one described here, group therapy appears to be a feasible and probably more effective means of treatment than the routine individual follow-up care.
