Theoretical developments in REBT as applied to schizophrenia

So, to return to my opening question, should we avoid cognitive approaches to schizophrenia?

A second, less extreme, position is to do meta-level interventions only - to develop rational beliefs about having schizophrenia - but don't try to tackle schizophrenia itself.
