In this innovative text,
Paul Chadwick explores a person–based cognitive therapy approach for distressing psychosis. The book describes in detail a cognitive therapy that addresses distress associated not only with the meaning given to ′symptoms′;, but also schemata, the self, and how people relate to voices, paranoia, etc. A clear, practical and client–centred framework is provided for clinicians, which includes:
  • the use of Mindfulness for people with psychosis
  • ′two chair methods′, developed by the author for working with psychosis
  • a detailed look at the ABC model applied to psychosis
  • guidelines for working with symptomatic beliefs
  • a new perspective on the therapeutic relationship and collaboration
  • a new approach to case formulation based in Vygotsky′s concept of the Zone of Proximal Development
  • guidelines on the use of group therapy for psychosis.

Person–Based Cognitive Therapy for Distressing Psychosis is a practical and important resource for all academics and clinicians who work with people with psychosis, or have an interest in ′Third Wave′ cognitive therapies.
