Show Summary Details

Preview

As described in the previous chapters, the last two decades have seen a renewed interest in psychological interventions for auditory hallucinations. In this chapter, we describe two case studies illustrating how the Attention Training Technique (ATT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can be applied with people experiencing voices in the context of psychosis.

The chapter begins with an introduction describing the Attention Training Technique and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, followed by two case examples. After the case examples, we will discuss the similarities and differences of the two approaches.
