Pia Callesen & Carsen Juul
Center for Cognitive and Metacognitive Therapy
Metacognitive therapy (MCT) is a new understanding of what causes and maintains mental illnesses. MCT is based on the S-ref model (Wells & Mathews, 1996) in which all disorders are maintained by the Cognitive Attentional Syndrome (CAS) consisting of voluntary strategies such as worry, rumination and thought suppression.
MCT is a very promising new treatment on anxiety, depression, OCD and PTSD. Most RCT trials document that approximately 80% percent of clients receiving MCT recover within 8-10 sessions. This is also the case in depression were other methods normally only show recovery-rates of about 50% (Hagen et al 2017)
In the workshop Dr. Pia Callesen & Carsen Juul will introduce MCT and show some of the data supporting evidence for this new paradigm.
