This volume contains seven articles on risk factors, models, and approaches to psychological intervention for delusions. Mental health specialists from Europe, Australia, and Canada review intervention studies that have taken a causal-interventionist approach and have focused on ameliorating affective states and affect regulation in people with delusions; cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis in which delusions were a secondary outcome; the effects of Metacognitive Training for Psychosis, a group training program that targets reasoning biases; issues related to the assessment of reasoning biases; paranoid delusions as an adaptive response to social evaluative stress; and how delusions could be an adaptive attempt to satisfy and protect psychological needs.
