Abstract: 

Objectives: For some patients with schizophrenia, hallucinations are unresponsive to medications. This study evaluated the efficacy of the audiotape therapy on severity and duration of auditory hallucination. Method: Three schizophrenic patients with persistent auditory hallucinations were assessed. The patients were asked to record the duration and severity of their auditory hallucinations over a baseline period of a week. Three experimental conditions were assessed in random order on alternate weeks, each condition were applied for two hours between 10am and 2pm for a week. Ratings were made during the intervention too. The intervention conditions were audiotapes of pure music (classical), speech and music (Radio Payam in Iran) and a blank tape (control). These conditions were compared to baseline using t-test.
Results: Duration and severity of hallucination significantly reduced when patients listening to the pure music, music and speech (p<0.05), but it’s not significantly reduced with blank tape (control).
 Conclusion: Audiotape therapy may be helpful in persistent hallucination. Using a portable cassette player has the advantages of being simple, safe and socially acceptable and the patients are given a degree of personal control over symptoms.
