This chapter discusses the phenomenology of imagery in clinical practice, and is divided into four sections: general features of imagery; specific content of imagery in different disorders (including mood disorders, eating disorders, childhood trauma, and psychosis); metacognitive appraisals of imagery (examining some of the unhelpful meanings and beliefs that clients may have about having images); and definitions of imagery (what is meant by imagery, and some distinctions between different types of imagery).
