Individualized metacognitive therapy for psychosis (MCT+) is designed to deepen and adapt the learning objectives of group MCT for individual clients. Click on the appropriate language below for further information and links to the treatment materials. If you are not familiar with group MCT, please visit our page on metacognitive training for psychosis (MCT). We have recently developed the second edition of the MCT+ manual, which is currently available in English and German only. We will update this webpage as other translations of the manual are available.

Suggested Contribution

We have been developing and disseminating MCT free of charge since 2003. We provide a detailed manual, worksheets, and hundreds of slides. The training is available at no cost for students and researchers, but we respectfully ask practitioners/psychotherapists who use the training for a one-time contribution of 30€ (or $30) before downloading the material. This would greatly help defray the costs associated with the program. If MCT is conducted in an institution (e.g., a psychiatric hospital or a general hospital), we ask the institution to send us a one-time contribution of 100€ (or $100). Donate online.

All contributions are considered donations, and we would be happy to send you a receipt.
