The research objective was the development and approbation of the program for psychological correction of the problem-solving behavior among individuals with schizophrenia, involved in the ADO. Twenty-two subjects - men with schizophrenia who committed SDAs, have participated in the pre- and post-testing. Experimental group comprised of 14 men who underwent the psychocorrection, and control group consisted of 8 men, who were not involved in the intervention program. The investigated parameters of the problem-solving behavior showed significant differences (p ≤ 0,05) in the group before and after the psychological treatment.
