Several studies have shown that source‐monitoring errors are related to verbal hallucinations in schizophrenia. An exploratory pilot study has been carried out to investigate the possibility of training patients in how to avoid errors in source‐monitoring. One patient with paranoid schizophrenia and persistent thought insertions was trained for 6 hours to use mnemonic techniques to compensate specific deficits in source‐monitoring. Results show that the patient was able to improve his performance and maintain the acquired progress at a 1‐month follow‐up assessment. These preliminary results are interesting for developing a larger controlled study of cognitive remediation of source‐monitoring deficits.
