The book contains many tried and tested practical ideas for helping clients, with several chapters including detailed and illuminating case studies. Areas of discussion include: * how to work with delusions, voices and visions * working with core beliefs * an exploration of narratives of past difficulties and traumas * recovery and ending therapy Narrative CBT for Psychosis will be essential reading for all mental health professionals who deal with psychosis who wish to learn a new approach.
