Can psychoanalysts help with schizophrenia?

ANSWER

Psychoanalysis is a particular form of psychotherapy. But psychoanalysis isn’t considered an appropriate treatment for schizophrenia or other forms of psychosis, so you don't need to work with a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional who has advanced training in this area.
