For display purposes the below text is in English. However, the worksheets and units are in Greek language!
MCT+ combines the process-oriented approach of the metacognitive group training with elements from individual cognitive-behavioral therapy (i.e. transfer of learning units relating to jumping to conclusions and other biases, to individual experiences, observations, and symptoms of the patient. Each module involves multiple exercises that are adapted to the individual needs and problems of the patient).
Six years after the release of its first edition, we are happy to announce the second edition of the MCT+. In light of multiple studies indicating that patients often weigh affective problems more importantly than positive symptoms, we have extended the approach, which was initially targeted at the cognitive biases responsible for psychotic symptoms, to now also help patient deal with low self-esteem, depression and stigma. The present program contains new or optimized exercises as well as new unit on self-esteem. The below material is an abbreviated adaptation from the German MCT+ concept. We are very grateful for feed-back on this version.

In view of the troubling financial situation of many psychiatric hospitals, it is our goal to provide most of our interventions free of charge. However, research does not only consume much of the free-time of those involved but also vast financial resources. If you would like to support us, we would be very grateful for donations. Clearly, we will help you, whether or not you have made a donation. No one should feel morally obligated to make a contribution.
We guarantee that all donations will go into the further development of our interventions (future tasks: translation of modules into other languages, new graphics). On request, we can send you a donation receipt (please send us an email with your address at email@example.com). Please inquire about different possibilities for sponsorships.
