The authors present two exemplary clinical cases that outline two different psychotic onset frameworks. The theoretical frame of reference is of cognitive-behavioral matrix: from the clinic to the model, it places emphasis on the construction of the therapeutic alliance with psychotic patients, the assessment, the formulation of the case, the discovery of personal history and finally, the definition of the schemes. Therapeutic interventions appropriate to psychotic manifestations will follow.
