Summary "Dimaggio and Lysaker have assembled a stellar cast of contributors who apply the latest developments in theory and research on metacognition to our understanding of both the development and treatment of severe mental disorders. The end result is a lively, engaging and thought provoking collection of essays that will be of tremendous interest to theorists, researchers and psychotherapists of all orientations."--Jeremy D. Safran, Professor and Director of Clinical Psychology, New School for Social Research, President, International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, New York, USA
"Traditional cognitive domains, such as language, memory or perception, do not properly capture the problems experienced by people with severe mental disorders like schizophrenia. In this book the editors have recognised that these disparate problems can be brought together under the heading of Metacognition. As the contents of the book so admirably show, this very important insight provides a framework for guiding both theory and practice in the study of severe mental disorders."--Chris Frith, University College London, UK and University of Aarhus, Denmark
Divided into three parts areas covered include
How metacognitive deficits may arise and the different forms they might take
Many adults who experience severe mental illness also suffer from deficits in metacognition û put simply, thinking about one's own thought processes û limiting their abilities to recognize, express and manage naturally occurring painful emotions and routine social problems as well as to fathom the intentions of others
Offering varying perpsectives and including a wealth of clinical material, this book will be of great interest to all mental health professionals, researchers and practitioners. --Book Jacket
