This chapter reviews the essential CBT model, such as the ABC’s of CBT model, as well as the specifics linked to psychosis in terms of cognitive biases (attributional, reasoning, etc) and different core beliefs, either specific to psychosis or shared by other disorders, such as depression or personality disorders. Cognitive and behavioral theories, linking biases as well as cognitive and metacognitive deficits, to positive symptoms such as paranoia, grandiosity, and negative symptoms are also presented. Other models used in group CBT for psychosis, such as the recovery model, which focuses on hope in the future, taking personal responsibility for oneself, and getting on with life, or the vulnerability-stress-competence model—empowering the person in developing protective factors to avoid relapse, are explained. The chapter also presents the single-session model, enabling participants to gain from each group session, and Bandura’s social learning theory, as useful for group CBT for psychosis.
