Rationale: The measurement of quality of life and psychological state is one of the outcomes for the evaluation of the effectiveness of psychotherapy Aims: To present the results from the measurement of outcome on the psychological state and on subjectively experienced perception of satisfaction of CBT interventions performed in patients with psychotic onset Methods: 22 patients (55% males 45 female age 24 ± 5) with psychotic onset were assessed at the beginning of taking charge and after a year of treatment with CBT, PES and psychopharmacological support. CBA-OE (Bertolotti et al., 2015), CORE-OM (Palmieri et al., 2009) and SAT-P (Majani et al., 2011) were used for psychological assessment.Results The pre post comparison showed statistically significant results in almost all the constructs measured by questionnaires. By CORE-OM patients reduce the perceived discomfort (t = 3.36 p = 0.012), and improve the overall psychological functioning (t = 2.38 p = 0.049), by CBA-OE reduce the depressive state (t = 3.85 p = 0.009) and the psychological distress (t = 4.65 p = 0.004). For the quality of life measured by SAT-P patients improve the subjective satisfaction concerning the resistance to stress (t = 3.63 p = 0.008); self-efficacy (t = 3.11 p = 0.021), mood (t = 3.13 p = 0.017), the social image (t = 2.83 p = 0.025).Conclusions The data show the impact that clinical and psychotherapeutic intervention has on the welfare and quality of life of patients, suggesting to introduce into clinical practice subjective evaluation with psychometrically-validated.
