Abstract

There is growing research interest in the role of worry processes in psychosis. This study investigated associations between intolerance of uncertainty, meta-cognitive beliefs about hallucinations and paranoia, and distress in 27 individuals with psychosis. Results suggest that intolerance of uncertainty may represent an important factor in emotional adaptation following psychosis.
