Metacognitive Training for Delusion in Treatment-Resistant Schizophrenia: A Case Report
Author(s): Devvarta Kumar, Mukund G. Rao, Dhanya Raveendranathan, Ganesan Venkatasubramanian, Shivarama Varambally, Bangalore N. Gangadhar

Metacognitive training for patients with schizophrenia (MCT) is a novel form of psychotherapy that aims to promote insight into the relationship between metacognitive deficits and psychotic symptoms, especially delusions. MCT has been found to be effective in reducing the delusional conviction and other positive symptoms in patients with schizophrenia. However, we are not aware of any research in which MCT has been used specifically to manage treatmentresistant schizophrenia patients. We report the case of a patient with treatment-resistant schizophrenia who responded to MCT. Her persecutory and referential delusions improved with a course of twelve sessions of therapy. Further, the improvement in delusions had a positive impact on her psychosocial functioning. A follow-up after two months of therapy revealed sustained improvement.
