It's well known that the so called "negative symptoms" of schizophrenia are very, very hard to treat.

Has anyone studied an approach where the patient / participant -- after a successfully completed exercise [reading, working, art, whatever], or perhaps at the end of several / the day -- just phones someone up to talk about what it was like and how they found it. Not for therapy per se: just a "chance to talk", about what they learnt, what they found difficult etc., rather than trying to target any cognitive changes.

I am basing this idea that apathy is a response to a lack of shared meaning.
