In brief: Biopsychosocial
In the late 80's and early 90's the concept of biopsychosocial treatment became very popular. In this treatment paradigm one addressed the biological, psychological and social needs of any patient regardless of diagnosis.
In the case of catatonic schizophrenia antipsychotic medications are given, and the patient is gradually reintegrated into society. For severe cases ECT has been effective.
