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.
