The role of the cognitive biases along the psychosis continuum: from pathophysiology to treatment options
Schizophrenia and related psychoses is primarily characterized by positive and negative symptoms, as well as cognitive disturbances. Cognitive factors crucial in the pathogenesis of psychosis are
Immediate and Sustained Outcomes and Moderators Associated With Metacognitive Training for Psychosis
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that MCT is an accessible evidence-based intervention, deliverable by a variety of mental health care professionals, and appears to be ready for large-scale implementation; MCT may merit inclusion in clinical guideline recommendations for the treatment of individuals with schizophrenia.
The effectiveness of metacognitive training on impairments in social cognition in patients with schizophrenia: mental health nursing practice in a community mental health center
TLDR
Metacognitive Training applied by psychiatric and mental health nurses demonstrated a user and practitioner-friendly, safe and effective program on social cognition in people with schizophrenia.
Metacognitive training for schizophrenia: a scoping review and phenomenological evaluation
TLDR
A possible dialogue between Metacognitive Training for psychosis and the tradition of phenomenological psychopathol-ogy is explored, suggesting that although some module-specific research exists, the heterogeneity of delusions has not been fully considered in MCT research.
Thinking biases and their role in persecutory delusions: A systematic review.
TLDR
Findings show that some cognitive biases are specific to paranoid psychosis and appear to be involved in the formation and/or persistence of persecutory delusions.
Neural Correlates of Aberrant Salience and Source Monitoring in Schizophrenia and At-Risk Mental States—A Systematic Review of fMRI Studies
TLDR
It is indicated that aberrant salience and source monitoring may share neural mechanisms, suggesting their joint role in producing disrupted external attributions of perceptual and cognitive experiences, thus elucidating their role in positive symptoms of psychosis.
Neural Correlates of Aberrant Salience and Source Monitoring in Schizophrenia and at-Risk Mental States - A Systematic Review of fMRI Studies
Cognitive biases are an important factor contributing to the development and symptom severity of psychosis. Despite that various cognitive biases are contributing to psychosis, they are rarely
The relationship between jumping to conclusions and social cognition in first-episode psychosis
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of psychological treatments oriented to work on a hasty reasoning style and on improving processing of social information linked to emotional recognition and single-cause attributions in people with psychosis.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy for the symptoms of schizophrenia: systematic review and meta-analysis with examination of potential bias.
TLDR
Cognitive-behavioural therapy has a therapeutic effect on schizophrenic symptoms in the 'small' range, which reduces further when sources of bias, particularly masking, are controlled for.
Metacognitive training for schizophrenia spectrum patients: a meta-analysis on outcome studies
TLDR
The studies so far do not support a positive effect for MCT on positive symptoms, delusions and data gathering, and the moderate to high heterogeneity in most analyses suggests that processes other than MCT alone have an impact on the results.
Metacognitive training in schizophrenia: from basic research to knowledge translation and intervention
TLDR
A metacognitive training program is developed that aims to convey scientific knowledge on cognitive biases to patients and provides corrective experiences in an engaging and supportive manner and two new studies provide preliminary evidence for the feasibility and efficacy of this approach.
Metacognitive training for schizophrenia patients (MCT): A pilot study on feasibility, treatment adherence, and subjective efficacy
TLDR
The safety, acceptance and subjective efficacy of a newly developed intervention program aimed at increasing awareness of, and possibly ameliorating, cognitive and behavioural biases in schizophrenia are explored.
Detecting and defusing cognitive traps: metacognitive intervention in schizophrenia
TLDR
This review introduces new evidence on cognitive biases involved in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia and demonstrates how the MCT raises the patients' (metacognitive) awareness to detect and defuse such ‘cognitive traps’.
Acceptance and Efficacy of Metacognitive Training (MCT) on Positive Symptoms and Delusions in Patients With Schizophrenia: A Meta-analysis Taking Into Account Important Moderators.
TLDR
This meta-analysis demonstrates that MCT exerts a small to moderate effect on delusions and positive symptoms and a large effect on acceptance of the intervention.
Effectiveness of metacognitive interventions for mental disorders in adults-A systematic review and meta-analysis (METACOG).
TLDR
Metacognitive interventions are likely to be effective in alleviating symptom severity in mental disorders and their add-on value against existing psychological interventions awaits to be established, potential advantages are their low threshold and economy.
Metacognitive group training for schizophrenia spectrum patients with delusions: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
In the present study, MCT did not affect delusion scores and self-reported cognitive insight, or subjective experience of cognitive biases and metacognitive beliefs, and MCT was not cost-effective.
