The book is divided into four broad parts, beginning with a section on cognitive models of psychosis and their assessment. Chapter 1 carries the same title as the book itself and provides an overview of CBT and CBT for psychosis, setting the stage for a dimensional and psychological view of psychosis. Here, two of the editors, Hagen and Turkington, present a concise and logical rationale for treating psychotic symptoms as experiences rather than simply as items that meet diagnostic criteria for a specific disorder. A primary assumption of this model is that psychotic symptoms lie along a continuum of normality. The authors outline key factors in CBT for psychosis, expanded on throughout the book, including rapport building, education, normalization, case formulation, and relapse prevention.
