A psychodynamic psychotherapy often helps people to understand the meaning to them of hallucinations, delusions and bizarre thoughts and actions. In such a process, it is often possible to titrate down and–sometimes–stop antipsychotic medications, as the meaning of previously frightening phenomena becomes clear and the patient calms through understanding and the working through of psychological material. Such a process is described in greater detail at www.treatingtheuntreatable.com
