Despite side effects, noncompliance, and the anti-psychiatry movement, medications are still a primary treatment for people with mental disorders. The Dodo Bird Verdict is a controversial issue: it maintains that there are relatively few differences between different types of psychotherapeutic interventions. Psychosocial interventions, including cognitive behavioral therapy and illness management psychoeducation, can teach patients how to proactively manage their disorders. Cognitive behavioral therapy and illness management have strong supporting literature bases. Although difficult to operationally define, the recovery concept has gained considerable momentum and has allowed many patients to live and work in communities of their choice. Music therapists can adopt cognitive behavioral and psychoeducational approaches to augment illness management and recovery skills in psychiatric patients.
