In this paper the role of metacognitions in mediating distress in OCD and auditory hallucinations is examined via a review ofthe recent literature. There appears to have been some interest within the last decade into the role of metacognitive thinking in both neurosis and psychosis. However, further exploration ofthis literature reveals some methodological considerations, which may require further investigation. Many ofthe studies include the use of a non-clinical sample and do not control for mood variables, such as anxiety and depression. Furthermore, none ofthe reviewed articles have included a measure of symptom specific distress within a clinical population. Thus, it is not possible to determine the effects of metacognitions in mediating distress. .
