Psychosis is a mental health condition defined by difficulties making sense of one’s own thoughts and feelings, feeling connected to others and having a sense of belonging to one’s community. One phenomenon which may contribute to these problems are metacognitive deficits which interfere with persons forming cohesive ideas about themselves and others and their place in the larger world. This presentation will describe recent research which has sought to define and measure metacognitive deficits in psychosis and to develop counseling methods which may address these kinds of deficits and promote recovery from psychosis.

Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe how metacognition allows persons to form a cohesive sense of self;
  • Participants will be able to describe at least two ways deficits in metacognition may making living with psychosis difficult;
  • Participants will be able to name at least two different ways in which improvement in metacognitive capacity might help adults diagnosed with serious mental illness move towards recovery.
