The experimental group received CST 60 minutes per time and twice a week for four weeks, whereas the control group received routine treatments. Data collection was arranged within one week before and after the training. Questionnaires included Fundamental Scale, Interaction Anxiousness Scale, Interpersonal Communication Satisfaction Inventory. The Chi-square and ANCOVA were used to analyze data. Results: The significant improvement on the conversation skill was found in the experimental group after CST. And the conversation skill of the experimental group is better than the control. Conclusion: The findings of this study indicate that the CST is beneficial to improve the conversation skill in chronic schizophrenia patients. The CST could be applied nursing care for chronic schizophrenic rehabilitation.
