This chapter considers how to use person-based cognitive therapy (PBCT)to help people with what Trower and Chadwick called ’poor me’ paranoia. It first describes the ’poor me’-’bad me’ distinction and relevant research. It then describes five key developments that take PBCT for distressingpsychosis beyond standard cognitive therapy for psychosis. These are: greater emphasis on a person-based relationship; a new approach tocase formulation; integrating mindfulness; more work with self; and a clearerfocus on meta-cognition.
