Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology, 26, 287±292. Chapter 3 Cognitive models for delusions Douglas Turkington, Caroline Bryant and Victoria Lumley Introduction Cognitive theories of delusions can be used to provide a link between the biological and phenomenological explanations of schizophrenia and its symptomatology. Historically, delusions are considered to be: False beliefs held with absolute certainty despite evidence to the contrary and out of keeping with the patient's social, educational, cultural and religious background.

Turkington et al. (1996) also rede®ned the concept of a delusion in line with the evidence base in an attempt to shift dichotomous views of psychopathology. It had been previously assumed that a person was obviously either deluded or not. A view showing delusion on a spectrum with normality seemed necessary to lead to an understanding within psychiatry that CBT might be of bene®t and that `all or nothing' views of psychopathology were not evidence-based (Strauss, 1969). Turkington et al. (1996: 127) proposed that a delusion is a belief (probably false) at the extreme end of the continuum of consensual agreement.

For these people the symptom is a danger signal which needs to be controlled. Such people will take no engagement or ownership of the experience and will avoid any situation where the paranoid thoughts might occur. If the paranoid thoughts tends to occur in social situations then the patient will strenuously avoid social contact. When safety behaviours are deployed in this way the paranoid thoughts never have the chance to extinguish and are actively maintained by the coping style of the patient.
