Are you troubled by hearing voices or seeing visions that others do not? Do you believe that other people are trying to harm you or control you? Do you feel that something odd is going on that you can't explain or that things are happening around you with a special meaning? Do you worry that other people can read your mind or that thoughts are being put in your head?

practice skills between sessions using worksheets
Based on clinically proven techniques and filled with examples of how cognitive therapy can help people with distressing psychotic experiences, Think You're Crazy? Think Again will be a valuable resource for people with psychosis.
