Appraising appraisals: Role of belief in psychotic experiences

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

There is a burgeoning interest, particularly among psychosis and hallucinations researchers, in the prevalence of so-called psychotic experiences in the general population. Individuals who are variously presented in the research literature as “non-clinical” or “healthy” or “without a need for care” provide an opportunity to explore and understand unusual experiences without the confounding factors that come with diagnosis.3 Frequently studied in clinical terms with clinical measures, this group is neither a natural nor homogeneous cohort, but may be thought of as an artifact of the effort to investigate what leads people with apparently very similar experiences to meet or not meet criteria for diagnosis.
