Background:Despite recent advances in the pharmacological treatment of schizophrenia, this illness remains a serious lifelong mental illness for which current treatments may only be partially effective. Many patients experience residual symptoms even when treatment compliance is not an issue. Residual psychotic symptoms remain a major obstacle to recovery and represent a major challenge for social and health-care professionals. Cognitive behavioural therapy of psychotic symptoms is a promising approach for adjunctive treatment of positive symptoms in patients with schizophrenia. However, if effect sizes of this approach are robust, they still are moderate and there is place for improvement. Our experience with new approaches such as metacognitive training (MCT) shows additional improvement of symptoms but these approaches need to be tested in a randomized clinical trial. Working Hypotheses:We hypothesize that eight one-hour sessions of MCT will have more impact on psychotic symptoms than standard care. Specific Aims:In this study we will compare the impact of MCT on severity of delusion to the impact of treatment as usual. We will also compare both groups on insight, hallucinations, use of services and functional consequences of delusions. Methods:We will use a randomized controlled trial comparing MCT with treatment as usual in patients with schizophrenia. At baseline, demographic and clinical data will be gathered. Intervention will then be proposed for 2 months. Outcome will be assessed at post-test and at 6 months after the end of the intervention regarding: psychotic symptoms, insight, medication, service use and functional consequences of psychotic symptoms.Expected Value of the Proposed Project:This study should allow improving treatment of psychotic symptoms in patients suffering from schizophrenia.
