Metacognition and Psychosis: A Novel Recovery Oriented and Integrative Approach to Psychotherapy for Adults 
A growing body of research has suggested that many diagnosed with psychosis experience deficits in metacognitive or the ability to form integrated ideas about themselves and others. As a result they may struggle to form evolving and nuanced ideas about the challenges they face and how they might best effectively manage them and move towards recovery. Spurred on by this research an integrative psychotherapy framework has been developed to help promote metacognitive capacity for adults with psychosis . Referred to as Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy or MERIT, this integrative approach is intended to provide clinicians with the skills to implement and evaluate their intervention. It’s ultimate goal is to assist patients to make personally meaningful sense of the challenges they face and decide how to actively manage those, ultimately enabling self-directive recovery. This presentation will present the key elements and research supporting MERIT and provide illustrations for treatment as well as methods for assessment.

Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.  explain three ways that metacognitive deficits are barrier to recovery from psychosis
2.  describe one system for measuring metacognition within routine clinical contacts
3.  list eight core processes which can promote metacognitive capacity within psychotherapy sessions
