Across the history of psychotherapy for schizophrenia, multiple approaches have been proposed that might assist people with this condition to recover. In light of emerging literature on the how deficits in metacognition may represent profound barriers to recovery, this chapter will explore an integrative model of psychotherapy centered around the possibility that a key to facilitating recovery may involve assisting patients to recapture metacognitive capacity. Specifically, we explore eight overarching elements from a range of different theoretical perspectives and discuss how they may guide psychotherapy to assist patients to develop more complex representations of themselves and others. A method for assessing adherence to these elements is offered.
