Research suggests that reasoning biases play a key role in the development and maintenance of paranoia. A number of cognitive interventions have been developed to ameliorate these biases, with the view that this will improve symptoms, functioning and quality of life in individuals with psychosis. Numerous research studies have tested the efficacy of these therapies, and integrating the evidence has important implications for individual, family and service-wide outcomes. The two papers presented in this thesis, a systematic review and an empirical study, aim to contribute to research in the area. The final section, which aims to place the thesis in a wider context, discusses the overall findings, personal reflections on the research process, some limitations of the two studies, and outlines implications for clinical interventions and future research.
