Abstract: Objective: To systematically review and appraise the studies of existing psychosocial interventions focused on improving insight in schizophrenia spectrum disorders. Methods: Electronic data sources used in PubMed from 2004 to 2017 to explore the Randomized Controlled Trials on insight. Results: A total number of 2124 studies were found with MeSH terms and finally 24 studies were included in the review. Studies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Plus /Meta-Cognitive Therapy, Structured Psycho-Education, Video Self-Observation, Social Skills Training, Compensatory Cognitive Training, Self-Stigma Reduction Program, Community Re-entry Model, Guided Group Self Determination, Motivational Interview, Naikan Therapy and Adherence Therapy. Conclusions: Overall, it seems that present interventions have a significant impact on insight enhancement but some limitations would be overcome in the future studies.
