Learning unit 6 for module 5: Memory

Our memory stores past events. It usually works quite well, but sometimes our memories are distorted. At times, we may even remember events that did not actually take place. We can mix recent events and recollections of previous experiences, resulting in distorted or false memories. Even healthy individuals may experience false memories. Memory errors (both forgetting and active erroneous memories) occur more frequently in people with psychosis than in healthy controls, and people with psychosis have greater confidence in their memory errors. If healthy people experience memory errors, these erroneous memories are often associated with increased doubt. In this session, you will learn how false memories and overconfidence are addressed in MCT.
