Psychoeducative efforts as well as family interventions appear to give good results. In the future Family therapeutic efforts could also be developed and evaluated. The concept EE is now not only used in treatment of schizophrenia but also against bipolar disorder, anorexia, asthma and other conditions. The concept has also spread to other countries outside USA and UK, for example Japan. More evaluations have to be carried out to establish which methods of treatment should be used in the future.
