In schizophrenia research, considerable progress has been made in recent years towards understanding the psychological and interpersonal characteristics of hallucinations. In this context, one particular class of hallucinations, namely command hallucinations (CHs) has recently become a focus of theory, research and clinical intervention. Indeed, the importance of CHs has become clear for both theoretical reasons – the light that these symptoms throw on the psychological nature of positive symptoms in general – and practice reasons, since CHs are one of the most high-risk and distressing, but intractable and drug-resistant, symptoms of schizophrenia.
