This groundbreaking book explains the "whats" and "how-tos" of metacognitive therapy (MCT), an innovative form of cognitive-behavioral therapy with a growing empirical evidence base. MCT developer Adrian Wells shows that much psychological distress results from how a person responds to negative thoughts and beliefs?for example, by ruminating or worrying?rather than the content of those thoughts. He presents practical techniques and specific protocols for addressing metacognitive processes to effectively treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive?compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression. Special features include reproducible treatment plans and assessment and case formulation tools, plus a wealth of illustrative case material.
Metacognitive therapy is based on the principle that worry and rumination are universal processes leading to emotional disorder. These processes are linked to erroneous beliefs about thinking and unhelpful self-regulation strategies. Metacognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features is an introduction to the theoretical foundations and therapeutic principles of metacognitive therapy. Divided into two sections, Theory and Practice and using thirty key points, the authors explore how metacognitive therapy can allow people to escape from repetitive thinking patterns that often lead to prolonged psychological distress. This book is a valuable resource for both students and practitioners wishing to develop a basic understanding of metacognitive therapy and how it compares and contrasts with traditional forms of cognitive behavioural therapy.

Abstract Background Metacognitive therapy (MCT) is a relatively new approach to treating mental disorders. The aim of the current meta‐analysis was to examine the efficacy of MCT in patients with mental disorders. Method A comprehensive literature search revealed 16 published as well as unpublished studies on the efficacy of MCT, of which nine were controlled trials. These studies report on 384 participants suffering from anxiety or depression. Treatment efficacy was examined using a random effects model. Results On primary outcome measures the aggregate within‐group pre‐ to posttreatment and pretreatment to follow‐up effect sizes for MCT were large (Hedges' g = 2.00 and 1.65, respectively). Within‐group pre‐ to posttreatment changes in metacognitions were also large (Hedges' g = 1.18) and maintained at follow‐up (Hedges' g = 1.31). Across the controlled trials, MCT was significantly more effective than both waitlist control groups (between‐group Hedges' g = 1.81) as well as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT; between‐group Hedges' g = 0.97). Conclusions Results suggest that MCT is effective in treating disorders of anxiety and depression and is superior compared to waitlist control groups and CBT, although the latter finding should be interpreted with caution. The implications of these findings are limited by small sample sizes and few active control conditions. Future studies should include larger sample sizes and also include comparisons of MCT with other empirically supported therapies.
Innovations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides clinicians with a powerful arsenal of contemporary, creative, and innovative strategic interventions for use in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This book goes well beyond standard CBT texts by highlighting new developments in the field and advancing a new definition of CBT that reflects the field’s evolution. Throughout these pages, clinicians will find empirical research to back up recommended strategies and discussion of ways to translate this research into their clinical practice. Readers can also turn to the book’s website for valuable handouts, worksheets, and other downloadable tools.
The Danish Bestseller Now Available in English Dr Pia Callesen presents the first practical book on metacognitive therapy, a groundbreaking new treatment proven to stop depression in its tracks. Many of us struggle with overthinking. We endlessly analyse what we’ve said and done or the decisions we have to make. Rarely does this treat the stresses of our lives. Often we become overwhelmed; we end up feeling powerless, spiralling into sadness and even depression. Live More Think Less presents a radical strategy to take back control of our thinking processes. From training our attention to leaving our negative trigger-thoughts on the conveyor belt, the book guides us towards living better through mastering the attention we pay to our thoughts and how we act upon them. Depression and sadness are something we all have the power to overcome.
