CBT for Psychosis

MetaCognitive Training (MCT) is an evidence-based group psychotherapy that targets some of the common thinking errors and problem-solving biases that occur in schizophrenia and psychosis. In this program, participants learn about the importance of various strategies, such as:

  • gathering sufficient information before making judgements;

  • attributing causes/explanations to an event in a more considered approach;

  • considering and accepting information provided by other people;

  • reassessing strongly held positions;

  • differentiating between accurate and inaccurate memories.

A review of a recent study (Moritz et al. 2014) demonstrated the efficacy of MCT in reducing the severity of clinical symptoms in people living with schizophrenia.
