What is Home-Based Metacognitive Therapy (MCT)?

This is metacognitive therapy delivered in a home-based format

The home-based metacognitive format includes:

  • A Home-MCT Booklet (6 modules)
  • The SPACE CD
  • 3 telephone support calls delivered by a trained healthcare professional

The Home-MCT booklet focuses on modifying the metacognitive beliefs and processes that maintain distress (e.g., anxiety, low mood). The modules are designed to work through at your own pace, but we estimate that one module per week should be completed.

Modules include well-specified techniques for developing new strategies to overcome worry and rumination, and modifying the beliefs that maintain unhelpful patterns of thinking.

Telephone support calls are delivered throughout and offer support and guidance on completing the modules and using the Home-MCT techniques. The telephone calls are delivered by a trained healthcare professional.
