Paranoia

The Psychology of Persecutory Delusions

«

This volume represents a major step forward in advancing the understanding of delusions. - From the foreword by Aaron T. Beck

'The penultimate chapter presents and overview of Freeman and Garety's updated model of delusion formation and maintenance. The model is an attempt to integrate all their work on emotions and cognitive biases, but also uses Maher's idea that delusions are explanations of experience. ... The richness of the model may be helpful to therapists planning interventions in that the model suggests many areas that could be the focus of work.

The majority of chapters draw on material in already published articles, yet the authors manage to bring these together by re-writing and adding material, so producing a coherent whole. Whether one agrees or disagrees with specific aspects of Freeman and Garety's model, this book is a very important contribution, is presented with exemplary clarity, and is work that researchers and practitioners will need to know.' - John Rhodes, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Haringey Adult Mental Health, in Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy, Vol. 34 Autumn 2006.

Paranoia is the suspicion that other intend to cause you harm. It is a common experience in the general population, though often overlooked. In its most severe form, paranoia occurs as persecutory delusions.

Paranoia, written by leading researchers in this field, is the first cognitive psychology book to have persecutory delusions as its focus. Scholarly, comprehensive and illustrated by clinical examples throughout, this study defines the phenomena in detail and analyses the content of persecutory delusions. It reviews previous psychological writings, explores the relationship between psychosis and neurosis, reports on innovative empirical studies with patients, and highlights future essential research directions.

Paranoia outlines a new theoretical model of the formation and maintenance of persecutory delusions, providing an excellent guide to this important clinical topic. It will be of great interest and use to all psychiatrists and clinical psychologists who work in this field.
