This case report describes a middle aged man whose auditory hallucination caused great distress and disruption in daily functioning. He was receiving treatment from OPD of LGBRIMH, Tezpur for schizophrenia. A single subject case study design was used; pre and post-assessment was done to see the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral case work intervention. The intervention reported changes in reduced distress, positive symptoms (auditory hallucination), anxiety and depression. The therapy outcome showed changes in decreased distress, anxiety, depression and positive symptoms.
