Metacognition refers to the ability to think about thinking, both one's own and that of others. In this introduction to the special issue on this subject, the editors summarize preceding literature on the nature and extent of metacognitive disturbances in severe mental illness. They then summarize the proceeding seven pieces that explore models of metacognitive disturbance in severe mental illness, its correlates with psychopathology, and emerging models of psychotherapy.
