The article presents the therapeutic-rehabilitative evolution of a case of chronic psychosis in a 46-year-old woman, carried out in a public psychiatric service in Milan, characterized by a cohesive multi-professional team and effective leadership. Numerous factors contributed to the favorable outcome, currently concluded and validated by single-case empirical research; above all the important role of the treatment group which, articulated with the therapeutic couple, had the function of both activating multiple pharmacological, psychoeducational, welfare and family support interventions, but also of containment and integration of chaotic and fragmented aspects of the patient’s self.

Keywords: public psychiatric service; integrated therapeutic-rehabilitative treatment; chronic psychosis; multi-professional team.
