Persecutory delusions, engine idling and taxi driver brains

This episode of All in the Mind (BBC Radio 4) includes presenter Claudia Hammond talking to Prof. Daniel Freeman (clinical psychologist at the University of Oxford) about a trial into a new talking treatment – the Feeling Safe programme – for people experiencing persecutory delusions.

The RCT involved 130 people who hadn’t responded to previous treatments. After taking part in the Feeling Safe programme, 50% of these no longer had a persecutory delusion, with another 25% gaining moderate benefits.
