When 'Holding Meakes Sense': Therapy for delusions and hallucinations
Claudia Morrow

Abstract:: The aim of this paper is to explore how psychotherapy can emotionally and psychologically ‘hold’ an individual with delusions and hallucinations in a safe environment and help make sense of the apparently non-sense reality. Different theories will be discussed and therapeutic techniques explored which may assist with making sense of reality by modifying and/or accepting some delusional beliefs and hallucinatory experiences. It was found that psychotherapy for delusions and hallucinations is effective when delivered consistently over a period of time and when a flexible delivery mode applies.
