Metacognitive training: Targeting cognitive biases

Ryan Balzan, Brooke Schneider, Steffen Moritz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The current version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
(DSM-5) defines delusions as ‘fixed beliefs that are not amenable to change in
light of conflicting evidence’ (American Psychiatric Association, 2013, p. 87).
Such a definition harks back to earlier conceptualisations that delusions are ultimately psychologically ‘un-understandable’ (Jaspers, 1913), and by implication
resistant to rational counter-argument
